The Event

Things for The Event in Birmingham are hotting up, and it all looks to be very exciting.

The official blurb is:

The Event is a contemporary arts festival in Eastside, Birmingham to showcase the best in artist-led activity. Bringing together artists, curators and artist-led projects, visitors are encouraged to immerse themselves in challenging artworks indoors and out.
The Event will be delivered by some of the city’s key artist-led groups to explore a range of contemporary arts activity including visual arts, performance, live art, film, video, web-based, installation, intervention and sound, all demonstrating the diversity of the thriving arts community in the city.
Using the creative district of Eastside as its backdrop The Event will take place over 5 days in November at a variety of venues including former industrial warehouses and recently opened artist-led gallery spaces.
The Event is the second such project co-ordinated by Birmingham Contemporary Art Forum [BCAF]. BCAF formed in June 2006 to raise the profile and continued activity of the city’s artist-led scene. BCAF is currently run by a committee formed by representatives from the following artist-led organisations and independent curators: a.a.s., Crowd 6, Eastside Projects, [insertspace], Mona Casey and Springhill Institute.

I am involved as part of Grand Union, it will be our first 'thing' as a group. We will be hosting an artists publication fair as well as distributing a zine by Grand Union members - for more info click here
