A Bristol 2015 arts project for Henleaze, Stoke Bishop & Westbury on Trym.
The project: ‘A Bristol Murmuration’ saw 1000 ceramic starlings created by residents of all ages in Henleaze, Stoke Bishop and Westbury-on-Trym, through a series of public workshops held over the summer. These hand-sculpted birds, came together in a spectacular installation on Durdham Down in October 2015, breaking down boundaries between people and raising awareness about the decline in the British starling population.
The artist: Zoë Cameron is a Bristol-based clay artist with extensive experience in community arts and a strong interest in stimulating engagement with the environment.
• 1040 people made ceramic starlings to contribute to the installation • Delivered 21 workshops • Approximately 11000 people saw the artwork during its 11 day installation • The project received extensive media coverage, including features in BBC Autumnwatch, ITV West news, Bristol Time Out, Bristol 24/7, BBC Radio Bristol, Ujima, BCFM, Bristol Post and several local community publications
