Bristol Animal Save presents; “Same Soul, Different Body”

What's happening?

Bristol Animal Save proudly present to you 'Same Soul Different Body.' An animal rights themed art exhibition from 14th-18th November at The Island in Bristol. (http://theislandbristol.com/)

The title for this exhibition was inspired by the Hippocrates quote “The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different.”

Entry is free 10am-10pm every day and we will be hosting different vegan speakers and performers each evening. Refreshments will be available.

See below for details of speakers and poetry

Final submission date is 14th October. Please contact us at bristolanimalsave@gmail.com and use "artwork submission" as subject line!

Artwork inspiration quotes:
“When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to him [or her] who suffers, and try to help him [or her].” – Tolstoy
“A simple reminder around a dinner table that a meal being served consists of dead animal parts tends to kill the appetite and makes the diners indignant. Nothing more significantly reveals the disgusting and illegal nature of this action than the need to hide its true meaning from oneself. To get a true notion of this matter one, first of all, has to face it. And the best way to literally “face” it is by visiting a slaughterhouse or a kitchen yard and first-hand witnessing the killing of livestock or poultry for our table. I have no doubt that the great majority of people who would do it several times with diligence very soon would recognize the unlawfulness of what is happening before their eyes.” - Chertkov 1912

We are looking for submissions of any medium (e.g. paint, pencil, sculpture, photography, performative etc) inspired by either the title quote or the quotes underneath on the topic of bearing witness to non-human animals’ suffering.

All submitted artworks will be shown on our website bristolanimalsave.com, our Instagram @bristolanimalsave and our twitter @BristolSave. We will select the works that will be shown in the physical exhibition.
