Away Day to Birmingham
Tuesday 4 February
Following the success of our ESP Away Days to Bristol and Cardiff we invited the Spike Associates and WARP at G39 users to visit our beautiful city on Tuesday 4 February. To continue conversations between the three groups we welcomed ESP members to join us for a tour of some of the city’s galleries, artist-led spaces and studios with talks from those who run and work from these spaces and behind the scenes views of familiar places.
Our schedule for the day looked a bit like this.
