Grand Union Collaborates
Working with and for our communities, we are committed to developing and supporting quality artistic activity beyond the gallery space. We explore new sites and contexts for the public to engage with art. We connect people and practices – artists, curators and audiences – to exchange and engage with each other. A multiplicity of voices contribute to, and participate in, our programmes and organisation. We work with NPO partners BE Festival, BOM, Capsule, Centrala, Craftspace, Eastside Projects, Fierce, Flatpack Festival, Free Radical, Friction Arts, Grand Union, Shout Festival and Stan’s Cafe to position Birmingham as THE ARTIST FRIENDLY CITY by sharing programmes and learning and working as a network to support talent and develop artists, producers and organisers. This group also works with Culture Central to emphasise this and articulate the city as the place for artistic development across disciplines (visual art, theatre, music, art and technology).
