Take Part in the Big Culture Blog

Take Part in the Big Culture Blog

21st April 2010

24 hours in the cultural life of Birmingham

Big Culture Blog

Midday, Friday 23rd April – Midday, Saturday 24th April 2010.

The Big Culture Blog is a unique and ambitious plan to map 24 hours in the cultural life of Birmingham – with the help of everyone in the city.
The plan is to showcase how much goes on in our city – and how many people are involved - to the independent panel who are judging the UK City of Culture 2013 bids. There will be a massive city-wide blog with contributions from as many people as possible to show the judging panel that the people and organisations of Birmingham are backing the bid.
The aim is to include as many cultural activities that people in Birmingham doing are doing on Friday p.m. and Saturday a.m. as possible, from children’s craft clubs and knitting circles to ballet rehearsals or a photography project at college, or a night at the theatre, comedy or live music in a club.
Why not visit Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery and blog about it? Exhibitions on at the moment include Bridget Riley: Flashback, the West Midlands Open and In Our Backyard. You can also see some of the key artefacts from the Staffordshire Hoard on display at the museum.
It will be easy to take part – it will only take a minute or two to contribute. The blog will be available at Birmingham City Culture Blog.
Find out more about the Big Culture Blog and Birmingham's bid to be UK City of Culture 2013 at the Big City Culture website.
