The Vestibules is a dedicated residency space which aims to give artists free space to develop their work, showcase Bristol talent and give cultural and community groups unique environments to display work.

The Vestibules opened in 2018 with the support of former mayor of Bristol and Bristol City Council Arts and Development team. We have hosted numerous exhibitions, performances, cinemas and pop up art markets in both the Park Street and Deanery Road Vestibules. From April 2024, the Deanery Road Vestibule has been used to house The World Reimagined Globes which are part of larger national project that explores racial justice and the transatlantic slave trade.

Artspace Lifespace is working with Bristol City Council’s Arts Development Team to provide an alternative way of supporting Bristol’s arts and culture sector by opening up the Park Street Vestibule as a residency space for artists. To apply for a residency space at the Park Street Vestibule or at one of our other venues (see our main venue page for more) please visit our residencies page:

The first week of the residency has been a rich experience. I experimented with the unique acoustics, began to explore bringing visuals and words into the space, and some beautiful creative friends and I began working on the performative elements. I am excited to see how the second week will unfold. I had a great time at the Vestibules, it was wonderful to be there. It has supported my work massively.
