ART FOR CHARITY CREATES CENTREPIECE TO CELEBRATE BIRMINGHAM’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Art for Charity, a collective of creatives and entrepreneurs from Birmingham, has launched the ‘Forward in Unity’ art project with the creation of its first- dedicated artwork in Digbeth. Designed to bring together Birmingham and draw on the skills and experience of some of our most exceptional creative talent, the goal is to create a permanent memorial to the hard work and lasting effects of the coronavirus crisis.
Head of Operations, Nathaniel Hanna, said: “We want to harness the creative potential across Birmingham to create a landmark moment for the city. We want to celebrate the spirit of Birmingham communities while paying homage to the efforts of those on the front lines at hospitals, care homes, education establishments and everywhere else across the city. Our aim is the creation of an artistic piece that the entire city can be proud of, then utilising its qualities as a fundraising tool to give people across Birmingham the opportunity to contribute to our ideology that the city will emerge from this crisis stronger than when it entered.”
