Welcome to the Birchfield 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Birchfield as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Birchfield with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
The event was to launch the booklet and mural produced as part of the 'My Endz' project with young people. At the event we were joined by guest speakers Father Bob Stephens (St Mary's Church, Handsworth), artist and photographer Vanley Burke and Hector Pinkney MBE. Young people entertained with words and music. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and coordinated by Kate Luxmoore (Ifa Yoruba Contemporary Arts Trust) and Russell Green (Birchfield Big Local Youth Worker) with assistance from Nyah Cole and Daniel Hamilton.
