Oct ’18 – March ’19 – Re:connections (part II)

We are delighted to be back in the Lee Bank/Park Central area for Re:connections (part II), our creative place-making project exploring how dialogical arts can be a way of capturing our sensory connections with where we live.

The project is supported by Birmingham City Council through Culture On Our Doorstep funding, and we are grateful to Edgbaston Community Centre for their amazing support

Activities will start with a series of artist led walks around the Lee Bank/Park Central area

 

Dan Burwood

Do you like photography? Would you like to work with professional photographic artist Dan Burwood to make a book and exhibition about Lee Bank?
He’ll be running a workshop at the breakfast club, making a photo book about how we see and feel about our neighbourhood.
Develop your skills, learn about photography, meet people and get free copies of your photos, old and new, at a family portrait studio session, details to be confirmed.
Dan will be at St Luke’s Drop-in breakfast on Friday 23rd June

Jess May Davies

Jess May Davies is interested in using creative writing as a platform to provide power and insight into the viewpoints of other people. The UK’s spoken word scene is constantly evolving and making room for more voices, with it’s consistently growing community. She will be spending time in the Lee Bank, getting to know the residents there and providing the foundations for them to say what it is that they themselves actually want to say about the area.

Jess will be engaging young families at St. Thomas’s Children’s Centre and groups at Edgbaston Community Centre.
