Wondered where all those felt monsters in Victoria Square appeared from or why skateboarders around the Custard Factory have been dressed in mysterious costumes based on Morris dancers?
It’s all the crafty work of Craftspace, who’ve been popping up around the city centre inviting 16-19 yr olds to express themselves through a series of activities led by professional artists.
The intention is to create a collective who will then go on to organise their own interventions throughout the city and develop ideas based on their own issues.
The project will continue into the autumn through Arts on the Move, a adapted vehicle which will host an exhibition of craftivism and travels to 40 wards in Birmingham.
Only question is, can I pass for a 16-19 yr old and join in?
