Since 2017, We The Curious has travelled the length and breadth of Bristol, to find out what makes our city curious. Having gathered over 10,000 real questions from real people, we are using them to transform how we work and our physical exhibits.

We The Curious is searching for a creative practitioners to help them in this groundbreaking re-development as part of the Make Space project. They are striving to diversify the voices and people who engage with cultural experiences and place them at the very heart of the exhibition designing process.

Working with community groups based across Bristol, you’ll be an integral part of amplifying their voices and will explore questions to build an exhibit together. Like all the best questions, there are many answers and ways to explore them. From sculpture to film, games or artworks, the sky’s the limit!
