Save Hamilton House

Save Hamilton House

We the undersigned will campaign to stop backdoor, profit motivated development of our community buildings. We demand that Hamilton House be sold into community ownership for the benefit of its community to protect Bristol’s creative and community led culture. #savehamiltonhouse savehamiltonhouse@gmail.com

Why is this important?

Not only have we recently lost two amazing organisations in Stokes Croft, Jacknife and Mark My Words, but now there is an immediate threat to Hamilton House being gentrified through the backdoor with artist studios and community businesses being developed into flats. The landlord has handed a vacant possession order to the building manager Coexist CIC for August 11th, making 300 artists and another 400 people working in valuable creative and community activity without a legal contract or any guaranteed security for the future. We need to protect these community buildings. Sign the petition. Act Now!

Stokes Croft, Bristol

Reasons for signing

  • Hamilton House is a wonderful space so needed by the residents and the community. It needs to be protected. It needs to stay.
  • Ive lived in Bristol all my life and it would be a massive shame to lose this creative hub.
  • Community is worth more than pounds. This place is a community hub, a creative school, a work place, a gallery, and so much more. Put people before profit and keep the community spirit in the city.
