Wednesday 22nd December is the deadline to comment on Part 2 of the Big City Plan, the public consultation on Birmingham’s development for the next 20 years. Part 2 is the City Centre Masterplan, concentrating on 7 ‘quarters’; the City Core, Eastside, Digbeth, Southside and Highgate, Westside and Ladywood, The Jewellery Quarter, and The Gunsmiths’ Quarter.
Fierce Earth, through the delivery of iconic events and festivals in the city, has always worked to put Birmingham on the map. Work by Luke Jerram, like The Sky Orchestra and Play Me I’m Yours, Benjamin Verdoncks’ The Great Swallow, and Tunnel Vision have responded to and played with the city.
We care about the future of the city and want to ensure that the architecture and planning leaves room for culture and creativity: for those interstitial spaces where the friction between old and new causes creative tension and productivity.
