We're looking for local artists to create public art to engage and empower local residents in north-east Birmingham as part of our Gallery37 project.

Gallery37 North – an initiative working on creative projects in and around Aston, Witton, Birchfield, Perry Barr, Erdington, Lozells and Newtown – is looking to recruit artists from Birmingham for seven new commissions being installed between  December 2020 and spring next year.


Powered by Saathi House and Punch Records, the projects are being co-ordinated with partner organisations across north-east areas of the city.


Among them is the opportunity to design several illuminated art installations with Birchfield Big Local for a specially planned community Light Night and procession to be ready for March 2021 around the ‘Church Vale Triangle’.


The Light Night commission has a budget of £20,000 for the artist and potential apprentice, and requires interactive engagement with local residents.

Another commission focuses on the creation of a large mural outside Saathi House in Bevington Road, Aston. This project has a budget of £5,000, is ideal for a street artist and also revolves around key community engagement.
