BOM (Birmingham Open Media) is forging a new model of radical practice at the intersection of art, technology and science with measurable social impact.
By making sustained investment in a community of Fellows and developing strategic projects and partnerships, we test pioneering ideas that investigate the transformative value of the arts across education, health and society.
BOM is proactively addressing barriers to cultural participation, by connecting world-class practitioners with activist research and communities.
We are born from hacker culture. But unlike other hackspaces that are filled with tools and operate on a membership model, our building foregrounds public engagement with a free gallery and events space, and supports a curated community of practitioners to deliver our aims.
