Up Our Street shortlisted for national award

Post date 30 July 2018

At Up Our Street we were very proud to be shortlisted under the Diversity Champion of the Year category for the first ever National Democracy Awards organised by the Minster for the Constitution MP Chloe Smith.

Emily and Stacy travelled to Manchester's wonderful Museum of People's History for the awards ceremony to hear about lots of interesting projects running nationally to encourage greater participation in democratic society.

Sadly we just missed out on winning this year but we hope to work with winners Patchwork Foundation on a project in Bristol in the future.

You can watch past videos from our political question time events on our gallery page and we will certainly be gearing up to organise more events in 2020 for Bristol's next all our elections.
