Mission Statement

Vanguard is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC) committed to improving local knowledge and respect for the global street art movement. 

The CIC was established to create and deliver an exhibition at Bristol Museum’s Mshed, celebrating the history and future of art on the streets.

The CIC will provide a series of public events designed to engage a broad spectrum of audiences. From art intervention, workshops, film screenings and talks, Vanguard and their partners work to promote discussion at the intersection of culture and sustainable action, empower local organisations and promote local economies to celebrate civic pride. 

Programming will be for the duration of the exhibition and will be interfaced with Bristol Museums’ current programme which works primarily with schools and youth groups.  Internally, programming will be considered through the lens of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
