Imagine, if you will, a warm sunny Saturday in May (I know, but stay with me) and you're at a loose end. The birds are singing, the trees look great, and there's a lovely light breeze. Perfect for a walk. You think to yourself, “I'd like to go out. Hey, I'll go to the SBA Arts Trail!"
You reach for the Pigeon, and scour through it. No Arts Trail mentioned here. Same in Venue. Where has the Arts Trail gone? Is it not happening this year? Oh no! What happened?
There will be a meeting of the SBA Steering Group on the 5th December 2007 at 7.30pm at the Southville Centre, Beauley Road, Southville. Come along and have your say on how the Arts Trail will be run in May 2008. Or just come along for the chat. Anyone with an interest in the arts in South Bristol is welcome to attend.

At the last SBA steering meeting quite a lot of people announced that they would step down, at least for the next year, from the SBA steering group. This leaves a vacuum that feels quite ominous, and there were suggestions that unless key positions were filled at the AGM, maybe the trail next year should or could not go ahead. At that meeting I proposed that I stand for vice-chair, and suggestions were made that it was not ambitious enough. I have therefore thought long and hard about this and have decided that I would like to run for chair of the SBA at the AGM.
This competition - now closed (link to gallery) was open for people to design a replacement for the traditional garden shed. I wondered if we might "borrow" the idea and have a similar garden shed or outside space competition as part of next year's arts trail. It might bring out the architect inside all of us. What do you think?
