Opening Hours: 10:00 - 17:00

HIV has caused untold devastation since its discovery in the early 1980s. Many lives were lost to AIDS before the advent of antiretroviral therapy, the treatment for HIV. HIV has no cure at the moment, but the advancement in treatments has turned the fatal condition into a manageable long-term condition.

Unfortunately, stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV is still a problem – it is real, rampant and affecting lives. You are invited to experience a week-long gallery display of art, poems, drawings and words by people living with HIV in Bristol showing the past, present and the future. The artworks showcase their lived experiences from when HIV was discovered to the present day and look into their future lives.

Official Opening: 28 November 2016 1-5pm
