the seven saints of st pauls® | st pauls’ carnival heritage initiative mural & trail
In 2015, The Seven Saints of St Pauls’® exhibition was held. Overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response of those in attendance, the artist, Michele Curtis, quickly realised more needed to be done. Two years later, what started as a one-off exhibition has become a creative movement that is changing the very landscape of Bristol and improving the city’s social and cultural health.
This heritage trail features a permanent outdoor gallery. The seven large-scale murals and accompanying mobile app are educational tools to learn about the rich history of the St Pauls’ Carnival and the contributions made by the Windrush Generation.
