From 4th-8th November the Digbeth/Eastside area will be buzzing with The Event, a contemporary arts festival showcasing the best in artist-led activity in the city which will bring together many artists, curators and artist-led projects.
The Event will comprise of visual arts, performance, live art, film, video, web-based, installation, intervention and sound, all demonstrating the diversity of the thriving arts community in Birmingham.
Venues include Birmingham Central Backpackers, The Rea Garden and the new artist-led initiative Grand Union. Those involved include Springhill Institute, [insertspace] , Eastside Projects and Crowd6. Earlier in the year The Event also called for submissions and will be joined amongst others by Juneau Projects and An Endless Supply.
There is so much happening that I will write in more detail in the next few days (particularly as Royal Mail seem to be keeping my programme safe…) To warn you in advance, the post may well include Morris dancers ;)
