MELA Social Enterprise’s Big Heart Balsall Heath project aims to bring the Moseley Road to life on Sunday October 8th. We are bringing the diverse people of Balsall Heath together to enjoy the delights and colour of their very own intercultural market. Artists are working with local organisations to ensure the event is a day to remember. We ran our first creative workshop where emerging and diverse artists mingled and exchanged ideas with the Moseley Road organisations. Each organisation will put on its own display representing its identity and that of its users. Interspersed amongst those displays will be artistic works responsive to the unique socially diverse context of Balsall Heath.
We are grateful to the funders, Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery.
