Ginny and Aimae, presenters at We The Curious – Bristol’s science and arts space. (prev. At-Bristol)
When did you first move to Bristol?
A: Two years ago, partly for the circus scene. With places like The Island there’s such a creative hub here. G: Six months. Moving from a tiny community was quite daunting but I’ve never felt more at home.
Who’s your top Bristol artist at the moment?
Can we say simply the local people? We love all the jam nights from LeftBank to The Three Tuns. There’s such a communal feel and anyone can join in.
What are your favourite eats around the town?
A: Definitely Flow, by the Bearpit. People don’t go just because it’s veggie, but because the food is delicious! G: The Cauldron. The food’s made with love and it’s all local down to the furniture!
What’s your favourite thing about the city?
You can be in the countryside in the afternoon, a mad party at 5am and then on a beautiful boat for breakfast. And the people here really care for the city – that makes all the difference.
And your least favourite?
Bristol is too awesome for its own good so we can get some thoughtless development. We need to make sure that hubs like Hamilton House remain for the community as they are used and loved by so many.
What are you most excited about with At-Bristol becoming We The Curious?
We’ve become not just a place, but a movement and a new way of thinking. With plans for an open city lab we’re blurring the lines around what a scientist actually looks like and taking people out of boxes!
Next late night opening at We The Curious will be on Thu 9th Nov, theme: ‘Humans’, tickets from £7.95, ages 18+.
