Birmingham Production Space is an idea. A proposition. A call to action. An opportunity.

With a unique combination of interdisciplinary making facilities, workspace and technical support Birmingham Production Space will be an exceptional professional environment designed to retain and attract creative talent, support practitioners, build creative businesses and position Birmingham as a place of innovation where world-class creative work is produced.

Birmingham Production Space will be a new civic asset, a national centre for the production of art and design where thinking through making is made public, where audiences engage at the point of production and creative exploration rather than the point of final presentation. Where artistic practice becomes tangible and design process visible. Where the artists, designers and makers of the future meet and learn from the best artists, designers and makers of today.

Written with Alessandro Columbano, Michael Dring and Sean O'Keeffe we are working together, and with others, to make this idea a reality.
