Knowle West Media Centre

East Leeds Pavilion – Research update

In January 2020 the East Leeds Pavilion Research Team visited Knowle West Media Centre in Bristol and took a tour of their maker space, The Factory.

Knowle West Media Centre is based in South Bristol on the Knowle West estate and supports people to make positive changes in their lives and communities, using technology and the arts to come up with creative solutions to problems and explore new ways of doing things.

KWMC’s work centres on working collaboratively with people from different backgrounds to develop new and creative models. Current projects include skills training and employment opportunities for young people, supporting community organisations via a diverse range of creative programmes exploring issues from housing to health.
