About

“Linking up Birmingham’s creative and artistic communities.”

Created in Birmingham exists as a platform to share what’s going on in Birmingham. The blog has been running since 1st December 2006, promoting, discussing and being part of Birmingham’s vibrant creative community.

Sometimes we do stuff offline too: in 2010 we had a pop-up shop in the Bullring, in 2014 we brought Glug to Birmingham with Inkygoodness, and in 2015 we helped resurrect’s the city’s edition of Pecha Kucha Birmingham.

We’re on facebook and twitter too.
