Let us imagine an artists house.
A house to rehearse ideas. A house to practice in. A house to imagine a different Birmingham. A house as a public artwork. A house as an outpost. A house for a keyworker. A house for production. A social house. A not-for-profit house. A real social house. A house that is a home, not a financial tool. A home for living and working. A home that is a public good.
