Slow the Smoke – Bristol Burning

Air pollution is a big concern in Bristol and the Ashley ward is no exception.

An increase in people using wood burners to heat their homes has motivated a novel research project by Bristol City Council, supported by Knowle West Media Centre and University of West of England. It was data driven and citizen focused.

As part of the project, KWMC commissioned artist Miriam Quick of Loud Numbers to create a music track that turns local air quality data into sound, featuring Bristol artist T. Relly.

Find out more when the team from this trailblazing project join The Word with Miranda tomorrow between 4-6pm on Ujima Radio.


Meanwhile check out the video and have a listen to the track, download and support this great campaign:
