    Enjoy a fresh perspective on culture at one of Santo Stefano al Ponte auditorium's rotating temporary exhibits. This 1000-year-old converted church is now the ideal setting for multimedia tributes to artists as diverse as Leonardo da Vinci and Banksy. Submerge yourself in a world of art thanks to cutting-edge light projections and surround sound.

    An Immersive Exhibition

    The creative journey of Banksy, the most subversive artist in the contemporary landscape of global street art, is shown through a magnificent immersive event developed with the scientific support of curator Gianni Mercurio.

    This genuine tale is told via a seamless fusion of visuals, sounds, and music that conjures up Bristol's underground scene. In 35 minutes, Inside Banksy manages to completely immerse its viewers in the world of the graffiti artist, taking them from the underground stations to the alleys of 1990s England. Be whisked away on an extraordinary voyage via the graffiti of Britain's most irreverent and mysterious painter.

    The VIP Virtual Reality Experience

    Feel the thrill of leaving your mark on public spaces with the BE BANKSY: Interactive Spray Can Experience, available with VIP tickets. Use the wall as a projection screen for your creations as you paint with a digital paintbrush or spray can.

    In contrast, the Inside Banksy VR Experience gives you access to the artist’s inner creative world. In only five minutes, go on a journey to learn about the author's most famous works with the help of a custom program made for virtual reality viewers.
