The Bristol City of Sanctuary Group is delighted to announce that it has just published the 3rd edition of its Bristol Globe magazine.
The high-quality, full-colour edition of Bristol Globe, produced by professional journalists, has proved to be of interest to local residents and visitors to the city.
Launched in 2011 to celebrate Bristol’s status as a City of Sanctuary and it’s rich diversity, Bristol Globe illustrates the history and people of the city, introducing recent arrivals to local cultures and helping Bristolians to appreciate the lives and customs of their new neighbors.
The 2013 new edition was launched at our Tea with the Lord Mayor at Mansion House on Wednesday 19th June 2013.
The 40-page new edition feature stories which including profiles of prominent Bristol characters, and organisations and contain an update on the Schools of Sanctuary project, as well including popular human interest features from previous editions. And more importantly heart rending stories about the plight of sanctuary seekers.
The magazine is widely distributed across Bristol in public buildings like libraries and the Tourist Information Centre, community centres and medical surgeries, as well as many shops, cafes and bars and on the city’s buses. It is also available on-line.
The Bristol Globe plays a key role in helping to promote the very positive benefits of diversity in our city and in raising awareness of the work our many supporters do to build a city of sanctuary for all those who need it.
You can find copies of the June 2013 magazine, and previous editions, on the website. We hope you enjoy it and if you have any queries or comments please do not hesitate to contact us. Any support you can give us to help produce the next edition in 2014 please do let us know.
