Welcome to our temporary holding page. We're excited as our new awesome website is almost here, so keep watching this space!  
We are Curiosity UnLtd. Proudly born, bred, and based in Bristol, we are an award-winning think-and-do tank. We conspire with corporate, civic, and community changemakers to co-create adventures in racial equity and social justice. We aspire to transform Bristol from the 7th worst into the best place to live in the UK for People of Colour.  
Our services range from communications and community engagement to change management consultancy and research. Through our flagship campaign Bristol Bus Boycott 360, we are co-creating 360 ways to honour the three 60th anniversaries linked to the UK's most successful, black-led protest. This includes the victory of the Boycott in 1963, Paul Stephenson's one-man sit-in of the Bay Horse Pub in 1964, and the 1965 Race Relations Act. 
Using our wits, initiative, and ingenuity, in year one we proudly co-created 87 events with 48 changemakers and with some pride year two is shaping up to be even bigger. Checkout our infographics and short film. If you like what you see, we invite you to join our BBB360 movement.  
It could be as a sponsor, funder, co-creator, or as a volunteer. Maybe you'll attend one of our events or help promote it among your networks. Big or small, whatever your pledge, thank you!

For your inspiration, here is how we've been honouring the Boycott. 

Inspired by the civil rights activist Rosa Parks, on April 30th, 1963, the Bristol Bus Boycott began. It started after Guy Bailey was rejected for a job as a bus driver because of the colour bar. In the 1960s, this racist policy was openly practiced against Black and Asian people across employment, housing, education, health and in public spaces.  
Described as the UKs most successful, Black-led protest, the Bristol Bus Boycott was organised by Paul Stephenson, Roy Hackett, Audley Evans, Owen Henry, and Prince Brown. It was supported by countless unsung heroes, sheroes, like Barbra Deterring,Joyce Morris-Wisdom, students from Bristol University and everyday Bristolians.  
After four months of peaceful protest, on August 28th, 1963, the Bristol Bus Boycott defeated the colour bar. This happened the same day as Martin Luther King's " I Have A Dream " speech. 
One month after it ended, Bristol's first Black and Asian Bus drivers and conductors were employed. These pioneers included Raghbir Singh, Norman Samuels, Norris Edwards, Mohammed Raschid and Abbas Ali. Thanks to the active ally-ship of Harold Wilson, local MP Tony Benn and Diplomat Sir Leary Constantine, the Bristol Bus Boycott, paved the way for the Race Relations Act 1965. This was the UK's first anti-racist law, which today sits at the heart of the Equalities Act 2010.
