Event description

Description

Over the last 5 years we have collectively crafted a 6000 sq. ft collaborative space designed to make it easier to do the work that matters, acting as a physical and social habitat for projects, practices, organisations, events and ideas.

At our third birthday party in July we re-launched Mission Birmingham to reflect the growth and reality we see, live by and work towards every day, and brought specific mission strands to the fore – Creative Resistance, #RadicalChildcare and DemoDev – to highlight the work we are more focused than ever on pursuing with curiosity, experimentation and passion.

We also shared that the lease for our current space in the historic Walker Building is set to end in December 2019 and we will not be choosing to renew it, meaning we now have less than 12 months remaining in our current iteration here at Impact Hub Birmingham. This is for a number of reasons which we’ll talk about in more detail at a forthcoming Town Hall meeting for members and the wider Impact Hub Birmingham community. Rising rent and changing development conditions naturally play a role, as do new, exciting opportunities arising elsewhere, but predominantly Impact Hub Birmingham was always designed as a 5 year R&D project exploring the Town Hall model, and we are now ready to change, move forward, grow and put into practice all that we’ve learnt.

With this in mind, we are preparing to launch a bold new project. We are firmly on a mission to help build a fairer, more equal and just city through people, place and open movements, and we’re excited to outline an ambitious new scale of vision for how we move forward and put that mission more deeply into practice, together – Civic Square: building the neighbourhood of the future.


Work towards this bold new project will begin really soon, and we are currently gearing up to share more and ignite the process of building this together. Naturally this means key changes will be occurring for us in the next 12 months. There will be plenty of chances to meet and explore and shape what’s to follow, starting with a Town Hall meeting for our community on Wednesday 14th November, 5pm – 8pm to practically plan and vision together. This is for you if you were part of our crowdfunder, want to support us, or are part of the community that this will effect.

You can read more about our Final Year here and if you want to get involved, book your ticket to attend the Town Hall meeting.
