Join the skaters and “emos” on College Green.
This 4 day workshop was run by Noel Goodwin from Connexions during the Easter holiday for young people, helped by Aikaterini Gegisian and Paddy Uglow with support from Bristol’s Museums, Galleries & Archives.
Hanging out on College Green is a good way of meeting people and you can always bet that at least one of them will be a hot emo boy. You can make friends with people who have similar interests as you in fashion, music and sports. If you like to watch skateboarding then there's always skateboarders (well depending on the weather.) Sometimes there's the odd skater that just stands there holding their board thinking they’re cool. There’s a toilet near by in the Marriot Hotel, (they have nice toilets and even hand cream). The local shop is full of wonderful goodies to stock up on for an adventure in the land of College Green.
Theres a bus stop about 10 seconds from the green so if you’re a chav you can make a quick getaway! There’s stuff for adults too like history and cool architecture such as the cathedral and the Council House. If you plan on getting a future but don’t want to move too far away from College Green (you may get withdrawal syndromes and miss the smell of College Green’s fresh grass) there’s a college around the corner so you can keep checking it hasn’t moved and your life wont be over! The sun is always shining and everyone is happy (maybe because some are either high on drugs or drunk). When you arrange to meet people you don’t have to spend hours explaining where to meet like next to the second tree 5 steps away from the wall in front of the cathedral. There’s always at least someone to talk to or even a bit of hot eye candy will do; and if worst comes to worst you can have a kip on the grass with kerrang (read about the latest emo bands that will be the latest trend in less than a month).
See you on college green!
