The 2020 Entry for the Chelsea Flower Show on Display in Victoria Square - 10th June 2020

Daniel's been over to Victoria Square to take a selection of photos of the wonderful floral tribute from Birmingham to the NHS and all our brilliant frontline workers.  

Much of what is on display would have been used at Birmingham's entry at the 2020 Chelsea Flower Show which has been cancelled this year.

Introducing Creatives We Are





Creatives We Are is the largest community-led collaboration ever launched by any city as a way of engaging and inspiring its Creative Community.  It is an initaitive of Birmingham We Are & The Birmingham Contemporary Art Gallery.

Let's collaborate! Take the article.  If you love arts and culture, connect with us. 

 


As well as leading a collaborative push that will benefit all creatives, the Creatives We Are programme of initiatives supports a massive drive to generate over £10 million in social value for Birmingham and the Midlands.

If you are a creative with passion, register here. 

If you love the arts, culture and creativity and you're looking to brand your business as a supporter of creativity, let's chat.  Call 0121 410 5520 or email jonathan@creativesWeAre.com.

If you're a funder of the arts, creativity or culture or you're a philanthropist we'd love to share our plans with you.  

Here's a very brief introduction to our collaborations and our programmes running online through 2020, and, when restrictions over social distancing are lifted, offline as well. 

First, our 5 collaborations. 

Birmingham Gems

In the largest community collaboration ever attempted by any city, we are mapping and tracking all that is great about Birmingham.

This digital space maintained with the help of community will continue to grow as a reference point for both visitors and residents to maximise their Birmingham experience by engaging with more places, more passions and most importantly, more people. View in development site here.

Art and Culture Trail

Imagine a trail of the city’s wonderful art and culture, with content supplied by community, mapped for ease of access and employing the latest technology such as virtual reality for maximum effect and reach.

That’s exactly what is being built in conjunction with the work being carried out in mapping and tracking our Birmingham Gems.

This totally unique collaboration involves over 100 different organisations and more than 1,000 people with creative passion across the community.

Photographers share the passion! Share yours!

Covid-19 just can’t stop people sharing their love for their City. Whether from their archive or from their restricted daily walk, we’re carrying on sharing all the great images of the City and its neighbourhoods.

Our first video in the Creatives We Are series was a huge success and now we invite anyone to send us their photos taken in or out of the City Centre. It can be of your favourite green and open spaces, an example of Birmingham’s great history or heritage, an example of modern or classic architecture, or a magical moment down along the canal.

A number of photos will then be selected for inclusion in one of our videos and following the restrictions we will be laying on an exhibition of all photography at The Birmingham Contemporary Art Gallery with some very special awards from some very special people who love Birmingham as much as we do.

Architecture and Us

Architecture And Us is the place to go to see the very best of Birmingham’s architecture. From the classics to the modern builds, we’re mapping them all, providing visitors and people who work and live in the city with a fantastic showcase of great architecture.

The site offers the huge number of creatives a place to engage and access an array of tools for sharing their passion for architecture.

It’s Your Build

It’s Your Build is a digital platform for showcasing Birmingham’s construction sector and its built environment and offers the huge number of creatives a place to engage and access an array of tools for sharing their passion for what is being built in the city.

Everything’s mapped from the application to the final build with content provided by and shared by people who love what’s going up in Birmingham.

And now our 4 programmes. 

Creatives Online

Whether it’s creative ideas you’re after or you’re just interested in joining in on a creative social, we’re building a list of all the online events run by creatives across Birmingham and the region.

Creativity and Wellness

A series of workshops and tools (online and offline) designed and delivered by our growing network of creative consultants and therapists. 

On the Edge of Art

First to run in ‘The Creative Edge’ series of community collaborations bringing out the creative in all of us is On the Edge of Art. 

Pitch Creative

Regular opportunities for Creatives to pitch their ideas or their amazing skills to those with the potential, the funding and the resources to change lives. Running on-line and off-line (when restrictions over social distancing relaxed). 

Contact us for further details on any of our collaborations or creative programmes or should you have a creative initiative you are thinking of running or have a venture you would like to discuss with us, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Jonathan, Albert or Sarah can be contacted at admin@creativesWeAre.com or call 0121 410 5520.
