A strong community focus is at the heart of Wapping Wharf’s ethos.

The vision is to ensure a sense of community is fostered among the residents, retailers and nearby neighbourhoods and that it is truly integrated into Bristol.

Community benefits that are part of the Wapping Wharf scheme include: £1.5 million for M Shed, the museum of Bristol; the redevelopment of Museum Square, a public events space by the waterfront; the extension of Museum Street and newly commissioned public art throughout the development.

In addition, Wapping Wharf supports a range of important community and cultural initiatives in Bristol, including: Bristol 24/7's Better Bristol campaign; Gromit Unleashed 2 arts trail; Luke Jerram's Play Me, I'm Yours street pianos project; Bristol 24/7's young chefs programme; a new boat for Bristol Gig Club; Bristol’s Shaun in the City charity arts trail; SS Great Britain’s ‘Being Brunel’ project; Bedminster's Secret Gardens; South Bristol Arts Trail; Bristol Museums and Food Connections, a unique city-wide festival in Bristol that aims to bring people and good food together.
