Join the People’s Heritage Co-operative this Half Term to find out more about the history of our rights and representation and make your own banner.
During October Half Term, families are invited to Moseley Road Baths to a free drop-in workshop to make a banner to go alongside banners created by community participants as part of the Represent exhibition. Taking inspiration from stories of how people have historically made change in their communities, in our city and further afield, this is a chance to get creative and make your voice heard.
Whatever the issue closest to your heart – social justice, our environment, education, healthcare, inequality, animal welfare, safer streets – come and follow in the footsteps of Brummies of the past and express your ideas for the world to see!
Date and time: Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th October, 2pm-5pm
Venue: Gala Pool, Moseley Road Baths, Moseley Road, Balsall Heath B12 9BX
Booking: None needed, turn up on the day and staff will direct you to the Gala Pool
We hope that this project sparks conversations and ideas about political organisation and representation a century ago and in the present day. Share your thoughts with us on Social Media by using the hashtag #RepresentBrum.
Represent is a project by the People’s Heritage Co-operative, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, examining these questions through archival research, co-learning and creative responses with community participants from Saheli Hub and the Monday morning coffee group at Edgbaston Community Centre. It is supported by The Active Wellbeing Society and the Library of Birmingham’s Archives and Collections service.
Please note that the Gala Pool is accessed by steps leading into the pool, therefore we regret that it is not fully accessible for people with limited mobility. In terms of Covid-19 safety, the Gala Pool is a spacious and well ventilated area. We strongly encourage visitors to make use of hand sanitiser provided and respect the space of others.
