Copied over wholesale from the Hello Digital blog (cos I’m not writing this twice):
The East Birmingham & North Solihull Regeneration Zone (ebns Ltd), supported by Advantage West Midlands, have been investing in the development of Digbeth and Eastside as a Learning and Leisure Quarter and a centre for the creative industries, particularly the digital media sector. They have been working with a range of partners including Birmingham City Council, the Custard Factory, the Bond, Vivid, Groundwork, the Learning & Skills Council and others to develop a range of projects, create new workspace and provide new learning opportunities.
One of the project ideas now under discussion is the establishment of a Creative Marketplace, and they would like your input to help decide whether there is the demand for this, and if so what it should be.
During Hello Digital they are interested in canvassing your views. Would you like to see a Creative Marketplace in Digbeth / Eastside?
