Time: 12 pm – 7 pm, Tuesday to Sunday

Location: The Island Gallery, Bridewell Street, Bristol BS1 2LE


The main hub for the creative conversations during When death comes will be the light and peaceful Island Gallery. It will be an evolving, vibrant and creative space that celebrates life as well as the role death plays in shaping it. You’ll find a visual tapestry of work – from ceramics and textiles, to poetry and quotes – that people have created or have found inspiring in dealing with grief and loss, or in coming to terms with their own death.


The show will change as people create and contribute new work.  You’re welcome to come and create in the Gallery space any time we’re open – just bring your materials and your ideas.

About the Island Gallery

It’s a beautiful space but there’s only one catch – it’s not that easy to find!  It’s in the old police station complex in the centre of Bristol, very close to Broadmead. Enter through the metal gates on Bridewell Street, near the junction with Nelson Street. And look out for the sunflowers!  We’ll do our best to make the entrance obvious, bright and attractive…
