This is a significant and continuing feature of Artscoop’s work. It takes the form of an annual commission from Birmingham Council to manage one of the city’s ten District-based Local Arts Forums. Artscoop has evolved the Forum in Edgbaston as a network of interests that reflects the characteristics of widely ranging local communities. All ten Local Arts Forums have now came together to form No 11 Arts, named after the famous bus-route because it connects the Districts together. No 11 Arts works with Culture Central, a network of all the major city-based arts organisations, and this offers valuable opportunities for wholly new approaches to culture in Birmingham. In continuing to manage the Local Arts Forum in Edgbaston District, Artscoop is proud to play its part in these exciting initiatives.
