Gallery37 North (G37N) is a creative development programme investing in north Birmingham and its young artists through masterclasses, hyper local commissions, residencies and workshops; powered by Saathi House and Punch.
This year Gallery37 North will be transforming areas in North Birmingham with commissioned artists and arts-led organisations, who will deliver public art projects and engage with local communities from January - October 2021.
Saathi House is working with a range of local partners and artists/arts organisations to display £100k worth of artworks across the public realm, from high streets, shopping centres, waterways and parks.
This commission programme also launches our upcoming three-year
Gallery37 North (G37N) arts residency programme for young people.
