Event description
As part of PAUSE we're dedicating a whole day to Open Project Night, including info about how to set up your own.

About this Event

Over the last 5 years, 6.30pm – 10.30pm every Monday has been Open Project Night, throwing the doors of Impact Hub Birmingham open wide to imagineers working on projects, ventures and ideas focused on unleashing a fairer, more equal and just city to all come together in the same space, whether or not they have a membership with us.

Creatives, activists, entrepreneurs, dreamers, scientists, makers and doers, everyone has been welcome to come along to add their vision of a better Birmingham, and we’ve seen some incredible initiatives grow with the open support of space, resources and an engaged ever-evolving community.

As part of our closing festival, we’re dedicating a whole day to open time for projects to connect with people, and grow ideas in the form of our first ever Open Project Day, manifesting the vision we have for future Town Hall space that is openly available to anyone.

We’ve seen people take inspiration from Open Project Night elsewhere in Brum, down at Impact Hub Brixton, Participatory City, and as far away as Boston and Ottowa, but we think the principles and approach to OPN could take many ideas so much further, particularly in our city, where resource and space are often at a premium or not available beyond highly restricted hours that are inaccessible for many.

As we prepare to say goodbye to the Walker Building, we’d love to see Open Project Nights take root all across the city, with venues opening up free, trusting, open space for brilliants projects and seeds of ideas to use with safety, nobility and power. Throughout the day there will be resources and contact time with team to find out more about how to host your own OPN in your own contexts, as well as participants and organisers who have utilised Open Project night to share their stories, so do bring your projects, your ideas, and your resources to share and connect throughout the day.

You can also book a place directly onto our How to Host Your Own Open Project Night sessions with Immy Kaur starting at either 12pm or 7pm and lasting for 1 hour.
