Bristol is set to launch a new initiative which will explore innovative solutions to the UK's housing crisis.

The launch event will be an exhibition running from 19th October to 4th November in Bristol's Waterfront Square, featuring full size concept houses and scale models.

Supported by Bristol City Council, Bristol and Bath Regional Capital and the Shaftesbury Partnership, the launch event will be the start of a longer term 'festival' that will showcase innovation for housing and communities on sites across the City.

Various new communities will be commissioned, funded and built across Bristol. Its goal is to develop scalable and long-term solutions to support local government to create housing, places and communities that engender hope and wellbeing.

More information on the Festival will be released in the run-up to launch, including details on exhibitors, sponsors and other events.
