Sharonjit Sutton

I am a Birmingham based multi-disciplinary artist and graphic designer who is interested in exploring the communal benefits of art, craft and design. A large part of my creative practice over the past two years has been working on educational, heritage, arts and community projects in the West Midlands, where marginalised communities benefit from the outcomes – such as having a platform to share their stories and/or access creative outlets that are not usually accessible to them.

Misfits Music

Misfits Music, founded in 2018, aims to bring people together through group music making and social activities.

Our flagship project, The Moseley Misfits is a community music group in South Birmingham for adults that play any instrument to any ability. Since the introduction of social distancing in March 2019, we have worked hard to move our activities both outdoors, into small groups and online to ensure we keep bringing people together through music.
