The Hydra is a community bookshop, coffee shop and meeting place based on Old Market in central Bristol. As well as selling some of the best coffee and cake in the city, we stock 'radical' literature on a wide range of issues; politics, history, feminism, animal rights, environmentalism that it may be difficult to track down in the usual high-street bookshops (if you can find one!). The bookshop provides a meeting space, as well as an outlet for independent non-commercial publishers and authors to make their books and ideas accessible to the wider community. Run by local people as a workers co-operative, the shop grew out of Bristol Radical History Group and similar networks across the city.
Hammer Time! is a collection of projects that provide people with accessible information and resources used to responsibly create and obtain what they need. Unlike traditional “charities” or “emergency providers” who may only offer hand outs, HT! confronts the roots of poverty, hunger, and inequality by offering individuals and communities alternative methods to support themselves. We strive to promote creativity, reuse, participatory decision making, self-determination, equal forms of exchange, and more meaningful connections with the things we use as well as each other.
