The Greenway Project in Bristol started with conversations around how to encourage people along greener paths into and out of the city, taking routes which led them away from main roads.
The project goes between community hubs and has used public art and food recipes to reach outwards into the community. It celebrates the local cultural foods of the area, the residents and creates spaces to gather and engage along a green route.
Delivered from conception to completion, considering how the community money would be most usefully spent. Street furniture has been introduced to the green spaces for feasting; bike racks for sustainable transport options with insect hotels to add biodiversity; changing the spatial configuration of the public spaces, making the community buildings look outward and shine by rendering the walls and supporting an artist competition; the recipe competition enabled local people to further engage with the project; tree planting and the consideration of the lighting scheme to create safer spaces by night. All of which enables the community to better use their public spaces with food at the heart of the offer.
