Next summer M Shed will open its doors to Bristol Music – and we’re looking for you to play a leading role.
Since the 1950s, Bristol has been one of the UK’s most vibrant music cities, incorporating a rich mix of styles, genres and sounds. Not only has this been driven by artists and producers, but crucially by the people of Bristol themselves.
With that in mind, we’d like you to tell the stories that have shaped Bristol’s music scene.
Music, as we all know, provokes the senses and stimulates debate.
For the past year and a half, we’ve listened to the views of our advisory panel of music practitioners, researchers and academics from across the city.
Some great stories have already emerged – from anecdotes about unlicensed blues parties in St Pauls, to DJing at The Dug Out and shoegazing at The Tropic.
Now we’d like to build as full a picture as possible by hearing from you.
Bristol Music is an open book, to be co-authored and re-authored by you. The exhibition will be informed by your opinions, your memories and your emotions.
Bristol Music will run from May – October 2018 at M Shed with exhibits, displays and events generating conversation, debate and enjoyment.
