Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Open Eastside

It’s been a little quiet here for the last few days. I have been helping out at the fantastic Flatpack Festival. If you are at Vivid this weekend please come and say hello!  As well as Flatpack this weekend will see Digbeth/Eastside open up for a host of events.

Here are a few to look forward to:

  • Private View for Gongoozler at Grand Union Saturday from 6pm – opening show from the new studio space set up by a group of Birmingham based artists and curators on Fazeley Street
  • The Purple Ceiling at The Lombard Method – The space has been holding a residency over the last few weeks to coincide with Flatpack. The show will feature the results of the residency from artist Ella Lucas.
  • Project Pigeon at the Rea Garden – as well as a live Pigeon ‘Feed’ in Vivid, you will be able to visit the pigeon loft at the Rea Garden on Floodgate Street from 12-4pm from Friday to Sunday.
  • Artist talk at Eastside Projects – talk by dutch artist Jeanne van Heewijk
  • Eaststride – a walk and talk around Eastside exploring its hidden gems, industrial heritage and recent creative developments. Saturday and Sunday at 12 and 3pm. Places are limited. To reserve a place email: admin[at]capsule[dot]org[dot]uk
  • Matt Stokes at Vivid – screening the work of the Becks Futures prize-winning artist.
