Redcliffe Future Way 2015

Are you ready to Write the City? Future Way is public installation art project seeking to engage the community of Bristol in Redcliffe’s redevelopment through a playful and exciting exploration of the area.

Working with The Redcliffe Neighbourhood Development Forum in collaboration with published authors, budding writers, artists, architects and community groups, Future Way reveals a series of virtual fictions which immerse the reader between worlds and creatively challenges the way we view our city.

“The Redcliffe Neighbourhood Development Forum is a community group whose mission is to re-imagine and re-make Bristol’s Redcliffe Way.” Redcliffe Forum

Stories are “tagged” to locations within Redcliffe forming a series of fictional trails to be followed through the physical city. These tags can be scanned via QR codes, and accessed via a password located on the tag. Follow the Future Way Map to discover locations.

King of Christmas Steps

Future Way stories have been selected through a month long competition with winning entries by four hugely talented local authors: Angela Brooks, Grace Palmer, David J Rodger and Judy Darley.

The installation will be launched at 1pm on Friday 1st May outside the North Entrance of St Mary Redcliffe Parish Church and will be running indefinitely over the bank holiday weekend and into the coming months.
