400 litres of ReColour paint, saved from waste and remanufactured, has been used to transform this old post office into a modern gallery for Bristol Photo Festival.

Organisers of this year’s Bristol Photo Festival have transformed an old Post Office into a bright new venue using ReColour remanufactured paint. This year, the public can take advantage of the unique gallery, and view some amazing photography.

Bristol Photo Festival commissions and produces exhibitions twice a year across the city, alongside an ongoing programme of events and workshops. The festival provides platforms for emerging photographers and an outreach programme with schools, community groups, charities and libraries.

The former Post Office became the perfect opportunity to create a new gallery space, but was in need of a new coat of paint. The Bristol Photo Festival got in touch with the network to order ReColour, which uses innovative technology to take leftover paints, filter, treat and blend them to create a range of high-quality emulsions, masonry and chalk furniture paint in large quantities

Community RePaint Cambridgeshire supplied 350 litres of Brilliant White and 50 litres of Gorgeous Grey to the festival. This gave the space a crisp modern new look, prevented leftover paint from going to waste and was made available at an affordable cost, at just £1 per litre.
