With the Outreach programme
There are loads of opportunities to get involved with all aspects of our project, whether your interest is to network with a parks group to give a workshop on a skill or topic of importance to you, writing copy, doing research, making films, conducting interviews, taking photos, creating a public art piece, redesigning an area of a park, surveying or doing sustainability studies, Bristol's parks and green spaces need you!
