Dareshack – Art exhibitions in Bristol city centre BS12BD

Art at Dareshack

It’s part of our mission to connect with the local creative community and to be a place where art is appreciated and shared. From a display of single pieces, transformation of secret rooms, to full takeovers, we curate works that can spark a feeling, a thought, and bring joy. In June 2022, we launched our window gallery, where we dedicated part of our shop window to creativity, facing onto the busy Wine Street, showing art to the public 24/7.
