The Loft Birmingham
2014 / Curating
In what ways can we rethink a city centre and find alternative uses for our retail spaces? The Loft Birmingham was a public intervention in the heart of the city centre that began by asking these questions. The 950sqft unit we acquired was split into two halves: one, a dedicated exhibition & event space that allowed artists and public to interact, and the other an affordable studio to allow artists to investigate, take risks and experiment with their practice.
The project was hugely successful locally within Birmingham’s creative scene, and also reached further afield, inspiring similar project in cities like Athens, Greece. And then going on to work nationally with programmes like somewhereto For more information and an overview of the project, please visit the Facebook archive page.
