We’re coming to Bristol!21 September 2013
End Racism This Generation will have a “pop-up_thinktank” in Bristol from 7-12 October 2013.
Are you in the Bristol area and want to learn more about racism and race equality? Come along to The Galleries, where we’ll be taking over an empty shop for a week of debate, discussion, film and performance. You can attend one of our specific workshops, or just drop in to find out more about the campaign at any other time during the day.
The exact location of the shop is Unit BG4, which is on the Ground Floor of The Galleries shopping centre, next to GNC.
