We are at the very beginning of the 21st century and multiple intersecting crises have become the new norm and the collective struggle for a more beautiful, just and equitable future has never been greater.
We’ll be taking a deep dive into the tangled web of the empire, discovering the stories that weave our past and present, and collectively re-imagine and rebuild a just innovative future.
Take yourself on the AR tour Empires, Pioneers and the New Radicals, an immersive tour mapping Birmingham’s journey from empire to innovation (1823-2023), from Birmingham Festival 23 Artistic Associate Elizabeth ‘Zeddie’ Lawal.
