Brick Project is a community interest company delivering a social cohesion activity, which has been facilitating the creation of archives consisting of thousands of mini-artworks created by local people since 2010. Working at unloved or neglected bricked or tiled public areas, the project performs two objectives; improving the environment people are living in and facilitating an activity in a collaborative space where people of different backgrounds can work cooperatively on a permanent public art piece.
The project started as a self funded experiment in Stokes Croft in Bristol, an area where for many years activists and artists have struggled to expose the injustice of gentrification. We gave the community an opportunity to work side by side with people with whom they wouldn't have otherwise communicated, realising the potential to explore public expression and relationships between strangers. After an area is selected and permissions have been granted, local people are invited to paint one brick each with the support of an experienced artist facilitator from Brick Project CIC along with local artists acting as Assistant Artist Facilitators. Individuals can paint anything they want; simple, detailed, written, or drawn. All materials are provided by us. After each event is complete the bricks or tiles are coated with anti-graffiti epoxy resin.
We photograph each brick and upload it onto this website. The artist’s name and title of their brick will be displayed when the mouse hovers over it. By examining each brick as it is completed, we ensure the final designs are appropriate and keep in line with the project’s ethics.

Since 2019 Brick Project has functioned as a non hierarchical Community Interest Company
