John F Kennedy Mosaic

Community consultation 22nd July 2010 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Venue: Irish Centre, Deritend, Birmingham

The Birmingham Irish Community Forum would like to welcome everyone on the 22nd July at the Irish Centre, Deritend to give us your feedback on potential sites for the JFK Mosaic to be ‘re-housed’ within the Irish Quarter.

The JFK Mosaic was commissioned and paid for by the Birmingham Irish community in the 1960’s. It is a significant part of the Irish community’s heritage, and with the support of Birmingham City Council the mosaic will imminently be reinstated within the Irish Quarter.

BICF have been working with a local artist Harry Blackett and the original artist’s son Oliver Budd to investigate appropriate sites for the mosaic. We would like your opinions and feedback, please support this project by coming along to the Irish Centre on the 22nd July 2010.

We will be honoured to welcome Councillor Mullaney to the event who is a prominent advocate for the project and Patricia Riley, BICF Chair.

Refreshments will be provided along with:

• Visual images of potential sites
• Architectural model of the Irish Quarter
• Film footage and images of the original JFK mosaic
• An opportunity to chat with the artists about the findings
