Bristol’s Art on the Hill takes place in the Windmill Hill/Victoria Park area over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th October 2015. The GPS App listing the artists has just been released. It works through the Appfurnace Player, so for full instructions on how to download visit http://www.artonthehill.org.uk/app-download-instructions.html.
MST member David Smith, who produced the app is part of two groups exhibiting this year. The Big Park Draw (www.bigparkdraw.org) presents a selection of drawings made over the year by visitors of all ages to the park in St Michael’s and All Angels Church. The Bristol ParkHive (www.bristolparkhive.com) team are displaying a selection of photographs submitted by the public from parks situated the all around the Bristol area. You will find them in the Windmill Hill Community Centre over the weekend.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the trail. The app can be browsed from the comfort of your own home, so you can see the work of the 100+ artists opening their doors over the weekend.
As part of Bristol 2015, European Green Capital, the Bristol ParkHive project (supported by Bristol Green Capital 2015 and the University of the West of England) are running projects that will promote and celebrate the large and small Parks and Green Spaces of Bristol, and the community groups that support them.
The project reached an important milestone in June 2015 with the launch of the Bristol ParkHive GPS app produced with digital specialists Calvium. The app provides a directory of over 200 parks and green spaces in the Bristol area, and works on Android and Apple iPhone platforms. On location, the app will show the user their nearest parks, but the app can also be browsed anywhere in the world and searched for specific facilities such as cafes, play areas, and points of heritage and natural interest.
The app is completely free to download, so even if you’re not in Bristol at the moment, why not add it to your app collection and see what Bristol’s Parks have to offer.
The app can be downloaded from the Google Play and Apple App stores. Search for Bristol ParkHive, or follow the links below.
