Project Birmingham have been at the vanguard of the city’s arts for three years, curating cutting edge events featuring the best art, music, performance, food and drink at a host of unique venues. Strong cultural communiques that transmit the message locally and nationally that this is a powerhouse area rich with ideas and ambition. Rather neatly then, Project Birmingham’s next event takes place at the exquisitely fashioned Medicine Bakery, opened at the former Victorian home of the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists on New Street and a stunning use of neglected space by the husband and wife team behind the sorely missed Medicine Bar. Over three themed days experience an incredible array of carefully curated live performance, DJs, exhibitions, spoken word and photography all fuelled by the pristine culinary repertoire available at Medicine. Day one’s theme is music with an opening night party featuring Eglo Records co-founder Alexander Nut alongside Leftfoot and Moodfix residents with a live set from Mysteron. Day two contains original art installations including an exploration of the long history of surrealism in Birmingham, did you know Conroy Maddox and his pals used to drink in the Trocadero on Temple Street? Day three is all about the eating, bring an empty belly you won’t be disappointed. A breathtaking historical space filled with free-form talent, cleverly curated creativity and home-made cronuts, don’t miss this weekend distillation of pure Birmingham art and soul.
