This event has happened

We’d love you to join us as we Gather again at The Crossing in Digbeth, celebrating weird and wonderful creative work with a range of brilliant speakers.

Leading the charge is everyone’s favourite weirdo, Mr Bingo, the self-described ‘Artist, speaker and twat’ who has forged his own career via a mixture of personal projects, being generally outrageous and rap. Rescheduled from summer, folks who had tickets to his BDF event on Saturday 11th June should have received a voucher code to claim a free ticket for this event.

We’re also delighted to welcome Priyjah Paramasivam, Design Director at Ragged Edge – responsible for the rebrands of Papier, Mindful Chef and Globe Trotter.

And last but by no means least, local voice acting legend Marc Silk will be with us to share his stories and talents as voice of 100s of well-known characters including Star Wars, Thunderbirds, Scooby Doo, Johnny Bravo, Black & White and SEGA’s “Two Point Campus”.

Outside of the talks, we’re got sumptuous food from Fat Snags, Big Kid Ice Cream and an on-site bar. You can also get your hands messy with a free drop-in stamp workshop from Pencil Pot Club. The Birmingham Design Shop will be there too, bursting with books and stationery.

Our speakers will leave you full of wonder, and maybe a little weirded-out. Expect honest and insightful talks, a lively interactive Q&A and of course, the unexpected!
