Arts Welcome Session

Moseley Park and Pool Trust is reaching out to artists and arts organisations of all genres from Moseley, Balsall Heath and the rest of Birmingham, hoping to start a creative conversation and explore opportunities for us to collaborate.

We’re working towards making this beautiful urban green space more inclusive and creative, including developing a new accessible area for activities and events.

We’re really keen to get to know the artists and organisations on our doorstep – so we’d like to invite you along to join us in the Park for our free Arts Welcome Session on Wednesday 8th May between 4.30 and 6pm.

The Welcome Session is a chance to:

  • discover the Park with fresh eyes
  • find out about the new developments we’ve got planned over the next 12 months to make the site more inclusive and family-friendly
  • explore all the ways that artists and arts organisations can tap into this rich environmental resource

We hope to find out what you’d like us to offer arts organisation (so that we can try to get the right subsidy and resources in place to make it happen), and what concerns and inspires you about outdoor events.

We’ll provide drinks, snacks and gazebo shelter if needed, as well as a guided tour if the weather holds out! Please feel free to pop in for a bit – you don’t need to stay for the whole time.

Come along to the Main Alcester Rd gate between Moseley Hive and Dixons (B13 8DD) and head straight down the main path to the Rangers’ Hut: if you have any issues finding us, you can ring 07471 675 553 for access.

If you’d like to come along, just email to let us know you’re coming, including your name / organisation, the number of people, their full names and roles / artforms.

If you have any questions about access or anything else, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
