Since the launch of the Arts &Creative programme in March I have met many individuals, groups and organisations working with young people participating in arts and creative activities. Many feature on the High Sheriff blog and twitter channel.
Please join us over the year to share your creative activities, suggest case studies and contribute to the programme as we plan for our arts and creative exhibition in March next year.
Below are some pictures from the Garden Party Exhibition in the Library of Birmingham.

Creative Future- Launch of Birmingham City Council’s Pledges for young people’s access to the arts.
BFI Mediateque – films from the region
Blitz – In the Darkroom Mark Wright, Billy Moore, Maria Antoniadou from BCU Vis Com Department.
LearnPLay – Young talented games designers and developers from West Bromwich.
Stan’s Cafe – installation Of All The People of All The World.
This specially commissioned show is based on official data reflecting young people’s participation and engagement in arts, culture, creative industries and the law in the region. Many members of the Garden Party enjoyed by the performance as well as being engaged and informed by the insights provided through converting statistics into collections of rice. Check the gallery below for some of the examples and look out for the surprising Jodie Foster appearance!
