The Island

The Island is a multi use arts facility and creation centre in the old police station in Bristol city centre. It hosts a wide variety of creative spaces from circus training, dance and rehearsal rooms, making spaces and artists studios to dark rooms, recording studios, a gallery and a suite of early 20th century police cells.

The Island is part of Artspace Lifespace Project, an artist led initiative that recycles vacant, under-used and problem properties into thriving active creative resources.
