UPFEST 2015 - 'A Miniature Berlin Wall' Art Installation

Date: 
Saturday, 25 July, 2015 - 00:00 to Monday, 27 July, 2015 - 00:00
Event Type: 
Project launch
Region: 
South West
Location: 
St. Francis Church, North Street, Bristol

We are thrilled to invite secondary schools to visit this year’s UPFEST in Bristol on 25-27 July 2015, which will feature our new exciting project – an art installation ‘A Miniature Berlin Wall’ – designed to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversaries of the fall of the Berlin Wall and German unification!

 

We are delighted to use this unique event to give local school children an exciting and creative means of engaging with German history and culture and some insight into an event which has significantly shaped the world in which they live.

 

The project is a part of the 'Languages for Culture, History and Society' thematic area developed by the South West Consortium and led by the University of Bristol.  

Programme: 

The Bristol University German department has joined forces with UPFEST (the largest street art festival in Europe), Routes into Languages South West, and ten local schools to run a competition entitled 'What I would have painted on the Berlin Wall'.

Each school is running an internal competition and will choose one 'East' and one 'West' design and paint them on a free standing panel (6 feet high / 8 feet long). This is a cross-curricular school project, involving students of German, History and Art. 

The ten panels will then be assembled into a mini-Berlin Wall at the UPFEST (25-27 July) on the grassed area in front of St Francis Church on North Street BS3 1JR to be viewed by festival visitors.

The festival is FREE to attend.

Check out our webpage on the festival website: http://www.upfest.co.uk/festival-venues/st-francis-church

 

We are looking forward to seeing you at Upfest!
