Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This February, artist-led project space and studios Caraboo Projects is making the selection.


Established in 2018, Caraboo Projects is an artist-led project space and studios situated in the heart of Bedminster, Bristol. Caraboo Projects aims to build an inclusive and collaborative platform with artists, curators and local members of the community, for experimentation and the development of cross-disciplinary arts in Bristol.

Through an exciting programme of free exhibitions, talks, screenings and workshops, they aim to support artists’ professional development and create meaningful engagement and education opportunities for the public.

Current exhibition Jurassic Moon is curated by Mary Roberts-Holmes and runs from Saturday 2 February to Sunday 3 March and explores the traces left on our landscape from the stories of our existence. The first  'Scratch Lab' will quickly follow – a multi-disciplinary week-long residency culminating in a live event on Friday 15 March. In the spring, artist and Caraboo studio resident Savinder Bual will present 'Javasu', a solo exhibition inspired by the story of Mary Baker/Princess Caraboo (29 March – 28 April). There is plenty more coming up throughout 2019: visit the website for further details.
