The Pearl Farm project was a chance for artists and creative people from different cultures and countries, who live and work in Bristol, to create work together. Performances took place at The Bristol Do, Stapleton Rd Festival, and Mivart Street Open Studios, and included elements of installation, performance, film, dance and music.
Artists came not only from all kinds of artistic disciplines but also from as far afield as Portugal, Greece, Iran, Iraq, India, Zimbabwe, Peru and Senegal.
Audience comments included:
“It was so un-contrived, so natural”
“I felt like I really knew something about them…”
“I didn’t ever think I’d see you make grown people cry.”
The project was funded by Awards for All and Bristol City Council.
