More shots of the empty C Block Of @hamiltonhouse_bristol Now vacated by artists and creatives for C and C to turn them into flats. -
Last inhabitant is this Minion.
Here is part of the transcript from the @bristol247 article where you can see more of my shots. -
“Hamilton House owners Connolly & Callaghan are not calling what happened on Friday an eviction, but many of the artists leaving their studios are calling it just that.”
“In a statement on behalf of Connolly & Callaghan, Suzanne Savill said: “Connolly & Callaghan are currently involved in negotiations with Coexist to secure a 10-year lease for Block A on Stokes Croft and the adjoining Block B, so that social enterprise at Hamilton House can be secured for the next decade and Coexist can continue in its work for the diverse local community.”
“A statement on the Save Hamilton House Facebook page said: “It seems they (C&C) have once again applied for Permitted Development (PD) which means no one can object. PD gives them no obligation to actually build social or affordable housing. So despite their words what do they have in mind? What’s their version of ‘affordable’ housing? Why try and get planning through PD?
“Even though we cannot object, we can leave comments. So we at #SaveHamiltonHouse ask you all to leave comments objecting to their plans.”
The planning application can be found here on the city council website.
Also writing on Facebook, Delia Anne Whitbread said: “As the only artist left in C block with C&C my new landlords, I have to say that if they are expecting the council to be impressed that they have evicted creatives from their workspaces to try to make the same application for planning as before they might be sadly disappointed.”
TAPPED OUT. There are moments when I'm emotionally spent. I don't want to feel anything for a bit. I'm tired of crying for all the tragedy and misery in the world. I'm tired of being angry at injustice and justice. I'm tired of wading through the lies, paddling upstream, and feeling bad about not being able to convince the masses that their "truths" are someone else's substantially financed agenda. In these moments, I pull back, not surrender mind you, rather take a few breaths and compose my bearing. Even the strongest of warriors needs a break from the battles. No shame.
