An Exhibition of ware from Stokes Croft China on the subject of the relationship between our rulers and the People.
Liz Krcma died very early in the New Year. She was on an artist’s residency at the International Ceramics Research Institute at Guldagergaard ( www.ceramic.dk )until the end of November 2011, and subsequently got a place on the Kunstnerprojektet KIT in Skaelskor, which is a project subsidised by the Danish Govt., designed to attract professional artists and musicians to work there in that beautiful town .
Continuing the theme of the importance of local culture, PRSC presents an exhibition of portraits by local artists of the people who live work and play in Stokes Croft.
On the night of October 14th, PRSC put up 20 panels in the subways of the Bear Pit. The materials were funded by Destination Bristol, who, to their credit, had no control of the content of the work, which was decided by local artists working to the loosest of briefs.
Despite any concerns that may have been raised, the sale of approximately 1,000 Banksy Molotov posters took place on Saturday May 7th amongst much good humour, and without incident, as several organisations including PRSC, Coexist, Bookfair organisers and Banksy’s people worked together to ensure that all went off peacefully.
Stokes Croft China is now set up to decorate sanitary ware to order, using the historic lithographs it has in stock.

It seems entirely appropriate that the whole of Stokes Croft receives this accolade, the optimism to be found in Stokes Croft in stark contrast to the gloom that shrouds the country.
