Could you be a Cultural Citizen?

Change the multiverse!

Eastside Projects is looking for five Cultural Citizens to feedback on their experiences of our exhibitions, projects and events, reflect on what we do and help us develop new ways to open out the organisation to different audiences, communities and perspectives.

We would like to hear from people who experience what we do in different ways – you might come on Digbeth First Friday, attend talks and events or visit our exhibitions. You may like what we do and how we do it, or wish we did things differently. Or you might simply care about culture in Birmingham and have opinions on what an organisation like Eastside Projects could, or should, do to support the city. You don’t need to be an ‘expert’ on art, we are looking for a range of voices, from different backgrounds, who are simply interested in what we do and would like to support us to develop.

We are hoping to find five individuals who will work with us across 12 months. You will need to come and take part in what we do – visit exhibitions, attend some events – and then attend three meetings across the year to talk things through, share reflections and feedback to the Eastside Projects team about your experience.

Each Cultural Citizen will be paid £50 for their contribution to each meeting.


To apply to take part please send an email to by 19 December, introducing yourself and briefly explaining why you would like to be involved in the scheme and what you would hope to contribute.
