Time’s positively flow, and after a huge amount of hard work and preparation, the ‘Not Just Banksy‘ event up at UWE’s Frenchay Campus is on today.
There’s loads going on up there, live painting wise there’s going to be a good mix of Bristol linked/WoC artists, along with some painters from UWE. The full line up is;
Painting during the day and into the evening, with lots of other stuff going along too. The programme of events looks like this;
Daytime: Midday to 5pm

The artists will be undercover and there’s lot of undercover space for you to view from, so don’t be put off if the weather isn’t great.
Evening: 5.30pm to 11.30pm
Talks, DJs, & Live Painting
Red Bar (above the Escape Bar)
6pm – People’s Republic of Stokes Croft

So, top stuff, if you’re lucky enough to be a student layabout, why not go and sit in a bar all day watching some live painting? If you’re not, go along in the evening and play catch up, it should be great.
