In July 2012, Trevor Pitt and Oliver Jones set up A3 Project Space as an artist-led venue and project space in Digbeth.
This March to October, A3 are working to deliver a series of projects entitled You Are Here, designed to encourage the communities of Digbeth and Bordesley to engage in their surroundings in a different way.
One of these projects was Richard White’s Viaduct, but if you missed out, there are still a number of ways for you to get involved:
Workshops: dates in May and June TBC
Steven Chamberlain and Steven Snell will run a series of workshops introducing people to animation techniques as part of their Sellotape Cinema project.
Friday 6th and Saturday 7th June
Going Down to Barry’s

There are other projects to be led by artists Rob Hewitt, Mark Gubb, Gordon Dalton, Cathy Wade, Mahtab Hussain, Jo Roberts, and Marlene Smith. Please visit the A3 website for more information.
