Time Saviours make history hilarious @Creative Reactions Bristol

Huge thanks to everyone who came along to the Island gallery and became Time Saviours over the last two weeks. We tasked you with designing and building prototype inventions so good we could send them back in time to help out/sell to our ancestors. We were not disappointed…

Yes, Rising Apecorp, and unexpected guest Napoleon Bonuspoints, were blown away by your ridiculous creations, such as:

  • the crocodile flail and scuba for Ancient Egyptian babies
  • the ice age dams built to keep doggerland and our connection to Europe open
  • the medieval cat armor (armor for cats)
  • the luxurious spa, science centre and tree house combo where the horses of cowboys could unwind
  • And of course the fully operational MOT Reminder cannon designed to scare off self-driving cars (literally blown away).

Well done to the two winning teams, who, in particular, brought extraordinary creativity to their solutions for the challenges of the past- or at least worked out how to suspend mannequin legs from the gallery ceiling. Commiserations to the teams coming last, we hope the Peter Kay Live DVD and George’s favourite glove make up for your efforts.

Above all, thanks so much to Creative Reactions Bristol for having us as fairly chaotic part of their programme for this year, and for the team’s support on the nights.

Enjoy the pics below to get a sense of how it all went. If you missed out, keep your browsers peeled for details of future events, we hope you can join us soon.

Rising Ape Presents: Time Saviours – w/ Creative Reactions

Join Rising Ape and Creative Reactions Bristol for an artistic evening out with a difference over two nights this May.

Ever thought a pub quiz needed less questions and more masking tape? What if Dragon’s Den had a love child with Scrapheap Challenge which went along on Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure? Then Time Saviours needs you!

The year is 2026. Time travel is an everyday reality. Apecorp have invited the finest creative minds in Bristol to their imagi-lution suite for one purpose: changing history for the better whilst making money off this extremely dangerous technology.

You and your colleagues will cut, tape and glue. You will laugh, cheer and argue. But will your team come out on top of the pitch deck?

What strange beings lurk in the mists of time? And what can you sell them?

Bring your pals, grab a drink and get stuck in as we challenge you to solve the problems of the past with your fantastic inventions, and most of all, enjoy yourselves!

Get your free tickets now for the shows on Thursday 23rd May or Thursday 30th May.

This event is a part of the SciArt exhibition curated by Creative Reactions – Bristol, taking place at The Island Gallery Space and North Art Gallery throughout May.
