Brum Rebuilt is an arts exhibition, centring on ten derelict buildings around the outskirts of Birmingham, one in each of the ten Arts Forum districts, and each one in different stages of regeneration. We want to showcase the historical significance of these buildings and advocate for their regeneration as community-owned spaces, at the same time as celebrating and funding the work of local emerging arts practitioners.
The exhibition will be hosted outdoors in the early evening. The photography exhibit will consist of a display of old photographs of the buildings curated by a local historian; a display of current photographs of the buildings taken by a local photographer; and future proposals for the building, written by members of the community. The event will also see performances by four local musicians and a theatre scratch night opened by SquareEye Theatre.
