The movement for emerging creative talent in the West Midlands
Dear Birmingham’s debut artists.. “They” may not hear you, but we do. London may be the city of opportunity, but our aim is to ensure that creative validation is recognised here, at home.
The UK's youngest city
needs a vibrant and buzzing contemporary art scene
Without a disposable income, or being within the arts circle, we understand the difficulties of seeing your dreams turn to dust. We are the UK's second city and have the countries youngest population, So why don't we have a young, vibrant and buzzing contemporary art scene in the city?
/ UNDISCOVERED /
BORED OF THE SAME OLD EXHIBITIONS?
Time and time again, we have attended the same old events, workshops and spaces. They have failed us. We need to be the
change in order to give our cities creatives a real opportunity
in the cut throat creative industry.
SO ARE WE.
We hope that by creating a pool of dedicated and talented artists all in one place we can draw the attention of the rest of the country’s creative employers to Birmingham and get our artists the recognition they deserve
It's time to move the spotlight away from London, let's get the recognition our artists deserve.
We need to expand our demographic and get people excited about our work. We want to create lively, expressive and non-judgemental gatherings and events that encompass the arts as a whole and embrace expression through, photography, art, illustration, graphics, music, poetry, textile, moving image, dance created in our city.
If you are passionate about your craft, so are we.
