Adblock Bristol began in April 2017 and was the forerunner to the national Adfree Cities network. We meet once per month, on the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm. Email us for details.
We are a volunteer group who are concerned about the impacts of corporate advertising on our health, wellbeing, environment, climate, communities and the local economy. We lobby for policy change at a local levels, showcase alternatives, organise locally to stop new advertising sites and produce resources to raise awareness about the impacts of commercial advertising.
Adblock Bristol is working towards a city that celebrates its creativity and independence, where residents have a say in what they see in the city’s streets and other public spaces. We oppose billboards and other corporate outdoor advertising, and promote a visual environment which reflects the unique identity of our city, the values of local communities and the local economy.
There are many opportunities to get involved in our volunteer-led projects, from community arts to lobbying for policy change. Come along to our next monthly meeting or email us to find out more.
Check out our Burg Arts community arts billboard in St Werburghs where we showcase local artists and provide an antidote to commercial billboard ads.
Adblock Bristol also has a podcast, Message Recall, available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Simplecast.
