Know your Success!

We are delighted to announce that Know your Bristol has just been awarded the University of Bristol Engagement Award 2012/13, in the Group category. This award is given annually to a group who has shown outstanding achievement in public engagement and, as you might imagine, is highly competitive. “We have all learned a lot about the city, but also about what matters to the people who live here.” Professor Robert Bickers, team lead for Know your Bristol, has said. “The team is very pleased that its work has been recognised in this way, and would like to thank also the hundreds of individuals and the dozen or so different groups who have worked with us.”

We would like to echo that here on this blog and acknowledge the support of everyone who has been involved in this project – the community partners who have shared their expertise and helped us run a series of successful events, and everyone who has contributed to the ever-growing archive of memories, stories and images of Bristol, then and now. Know your Bristol is not just a resource for the local community – it’s a resource created and shaped by the communities we have worked with. And we hope that there will be many other opportunities for people to share their knowledge with us and create their own history of Bristol.
