Bristol Elders at the Royal West of England Academy

With all three groups enjoying their busy schedules this summer, let’s take a look at what they’ve been up to…

‘To Still the Saints’ Exhibition at RWA Bristol

In a series of photographs by Olumide Osinoiki, the enduring spirit of the women of Evergreen Club in Easton, Bristol are celebrated and admired. Part of the Windrush era, their portraits hang alongside the Royal Collection touring exhibition, Windrush: Portraits of a Pioneering Generation which is exhibiting at the RWA until 11 August.

Evergreen Elders also contributed to the DIASPORA Festival, creating one of the eight ‘Flag Up Your Identity’ banners which were hung in the forecourt of the RWA this May.

Bristol Elders Summer Update

Alongside their forays into the art world, members have also been enjoying their regular trips, welcoming speakers, and attending events.

Malcolm X Elders hosted a visit from a group from Leicester – celebrating Windrush together they enjoyed a film, played a quiz game and shared lunch. The Golden Agers held a successful Bring and Buy sale with lots of lovely cake, fritters and goodies. Pegasus Opera group came from Brixton and gave a performance at Malcolm X Centre for all three groups, followed by a discussion with members and a delicious lunch.
