Securing cultural assets such as Grand Union within advancing regeneration of Digbeth is of crucial importance to the long term sustainability of the location as a vibrant and diverse community.

Digbeth is home to a significant artistic community that attracts visitors from across the UK and around the world… This development helps to ensure this community can continue to thrive.

This new public arts facility will provide much needed space for artists to produce and present work in the city and provide public access to an important historic site. It is important that Digbeth continues to be a creative and cultural hub for the City with a thriving community of independent companies.

Your work as an important provider of affordable studio space for artists in the city forms an integral part of Birmingham’s continually growing and vibrant arts ecology.
