Filwood Fantastic was a locally led arts and culture project – for, with, and by Knowle Westers. The local mission was to make a creative cultural hub for Knowle West and beyond (further south Bristol). The aims included transforming local spaces using creativity in order to bring people together, growing local pride, changing perceptions about the area, and nurture, support and showcase local creative talents. All ideas were developed with local people through co-design workshops and interactive outreach on the streets. To find out more and get involved visit our whats on page.
The area was one of 16 awarded the Creative Civic Change fund project, for 3 years.
Each community was supported with funds and advisors to deliver on their own visions using creativity. For more information about Creative Civic Change nationally go to:
