Forward Thinking exhibition

Join us for an exciting showcase of the design talent in Birmingham and the West Midlands at our graphic exhibition FORWARD THINKING.

34 designers, artists and illustrators from our fair city and the region have come together to produce artwork celebrating how design will move forward and shape our future in Birmingham. The exhibition will take place in Medicine Bakery and Gallery on New Street, in the festival’s graphic design district. Medicine’s first floor Victorian space, previously home to the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists, is the perfect venue for this unique and thought provoking exhibition.

Admission free. Supported by Holodeck.
