There will be an opening night for this event at 6PM of Friday 25th August.
The exhibition invites all residents and visitors to Bristol to explore learning in the city through interactive exhibits.
To demonstrate the different ways on learning in Bristol, the first gallery will present some of its different aspects and geographies. The second gallery delves into the politics of learning.
The exhibition forms an integral part of the Reinventing Learning Cities research, which examines the different ways in which cities learn.
