Arnolfini is a centre for contemporary arts based on Bristol’s harbourside in the heart of the city.

Woven into the fabric of Bristol since 1961, Arnolfini is a pioneer of interdisciplinary contemporary arts, presenting an ambitious programme of visual arts, performance, dance, film, music, workshops and family events. Their eclectic projects have been carefully curated to appeal to a broad audience, underpinned by a commitment to maintaining a dynamic civic role in the city.

An internationally-renowned institution, throughout its history Arnolfini’s programme has welcomed artists from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds, supporting and developing their work, investigating their influences and aspirations. In 2016 Arnolfini received an Art Fund grant to initiate an oral histories project, which will preserve the memories of the people who were involved in the founding of the organisation.

The heritage and wide-reaching impact of the organisation is showcased in a 60 year archive of exhibition slides, publications and artist book collection, continuing to build on the multicultural, diverse and inclusive ethos that has prevailed since its inception.

Arnolfini remains at the heart of the Bristol community, always mindful of founding director Jeremy Rees’ principle to ‘Enjoy Yourself’, inviting everyone to join in.
