The Peoples Platform is an interactive public art experience centred on Colston's empty plinth and an invitation to Bristolians of all ages and backgrounds to submit designs for what they would like to see on the empty plinth. It’s also an invitation for the city to engage the discussion around who or what is celebrated in our public spaces and about how the city’s history and common values can be better reflected.
