Courtenay Welcome is an Artist, Activist, Creative Director and Critical Thinker based between Bristol and Birmingham UK. Welcome's work explores the rich complexities of race, memory, space and time through painting, installation, text and performance. These explorations tackle, mimic, reconstruct and shift the perspective of universal “truths” within the white walls of the western art world. Welcome depicts the sense of self though lived experiences. Documenting transitions from one embodiment to another, while critically addressing the ways in which these transitions are perceived by institutional means. All informed by a critical infrastructure of decolonisation.

#WhoseFuture represents an age-old struggle for youth resilience, security, agency and the need for positive social change. Celebrating a striking portfolio of bold visual imagery from Rising's network of young creatives, this project presents a unique opportunity for us all to listen, reflect and act, and for our young people to be heard.
Rising Arts Agency is a community of young creative thinkers aged 16-30. Their mission is to empower Bristol's under-represented young people to fulfil their creative ambitions and to affect wider social change through the arts. The agency is co-created with and for young people, and is fiercely independent.
