CARGO is an immersive arts installation looking at Bristol and the African Diaspora’s histories and shared legacies over the last 500 years.

The journey begins with Bristol’s exploring ventures and follows the lives of people from the African Diaspora who fought for there freedom, human and civil rights.  Concluding in the present day with the appointment of Peaches Golding HRH Lord Lieutenant to the City and County of Bristol. Full circle, no not quite, but it is a story to empower all from the African Diaspora and Bristol.

CARGO was developed as part of Watershed's annual New Talent Residency programme supports ambitious practitioners to develop creative technology projects. We actively support those who are just starting out, changing career direction or looking to return from a career break. With space to work within the Pervasive Media Studio, a community of peers, a project bursary, and support to make, test and discuss work, we help get ideas off the ground.
