Build your Creative Neighbourhood of the Future

This event has happened

Join us reimagine, co-design and prototype your future creative neighbourhood.
This workshop’s challenge is to reimagine a neighbourhood within the Birmingham or Black Country area with a new creative & equitable purpose! Together, we will as teams face off to rapidly prototype your neighbourhood ideas; creating miniature versions of them from unconventional city-born materials.
Creations from this workshop will be exhibited in a public arts space as part of a body of work celebrating the power of everyday citizens to reimagine and design purposeful cities they want to live in; with an extended invitation for those willing to continue this project to help redevelop a real local neighbourhood.

Things to Expect

  • Model Making (Cutting, Gluing, Fixing, Tearing, Breaking, Building)
  • Open Discussion (Dreams, Desires, Goals, Lived experiences)
  • Co-Learning (Discover new things about how cities are designed vs. how we would like them to be)

Things to bring:

  • (optional) Old, unloved or unused household item(s)
