Bristol Big Green Week
WOW – This year’s Festival (15th to 23rd June) was an amazing success. 50,000 visitors enjoyed two weekends of free family entertainment and nine days of inspiring talks, workshops, art, music, poetry, comedy and films. Bristol won the ‘EU Green Capital 2015′ award, and became the first UK city to ban traffic from its centre for our Sunday finale.
We did our bit by taking the light bulb competition to the Solar Pavilion .
Is one of those Bristolian events you have to go to. We teamed up with Easton Energy Community Group and challenged people with our “light box”, seeing who can light the most light bulbs and helping them making the connection between physical energy and electricity generation.
The launch of the Boneshaker Magazine #11th issues had to be done in an appropriate style so we helped the Bristol Bike Project put on a film night in their workshop.
“Boneshaker magazine started out as a series of scribbles on the back of a napkin in a café in Bristol, UK. Having set up the volunteer-run Bristol Bike Project 18 months previously and seen it evolve before my eyes, I was riding an inspired wave of a world on two wheels.”
Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mind set and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture.
We went down there with our light bulb challenge and asked people of all ages to cycle to light them…they really felt the difference between an LED light bulb and an old filament one.
We powered, with the help of the cyclists/ viewers one of the Palestinian film festival nights at the Hamilton House.
