The Birmingham Production Space Proposal sets out an ambitious proposition for a new public facility with workshops and making at its core.
Written by Ruth Claxton, Alessandro Columbano, Michael Dring and Sean O’Keeffe the proposal was funded by Arts Council England and informed by a series of research visits to workshops, studio complexes and makerspaces across the UK which specialize in support for artists, designers and craftspeople as well as ‘focus groups’ with practitioners, an online survey and feedback from public discussions. Survey results, research and information on case studies can be found here.
We continue to work with others to realize this vision. If would like to help please get in touch.
