We met Laira recently when she was in Digbeth plotting things with Craig. A couple of weeks later, and fundraising for the first Birmingham Architecture Festival has just begun on Kickstarter. The festival will take place between 24-27 May, and will include guided tours, workshops, film screenings, talks and exhibitions.
The architecture in Birmingham - and Digbeth in particular - was a major factor in the decision to set up PROVIDE here, so we are very excited about this celebration of the buildings all around us. Check out the fundraising information here, and pledge your support if you can. BAF is a welcome addition to the city, and we look forward to seeing how it evolves over the next few years.
