Common Ground begins Birmingham 2022 countdown
As part of its three years to go celebrations, the team behind Birmingham 2022 is rolling out an art-led community research project called Common Ground which aims to connect communities across the region. The project will visit nine locations across the West Midlands throughout July and will encourage local people to explore how they feel the Games can unite the city and benefit people living in the local area.
Local artist illustrators Room 0121 and Void One will be involved with the project along with a team of researchers hoping to explore how Birmingham 2022 can benefit the city and create a legacy. The findings will then be used by the artists to create a visual interpretation of the conversations, as they happen, at each location.
Common Ground will conclude with the Commonwealth Social in the city centre on Saturday 27th July which will mark the momentous milestone of three years to go until the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. The Birmingham 2022 brand identity will also be revealed at the event which has been co-created with local communities to truly reflect the region.
