You can contribute (by email) to the Big Culture Blog between Noon on Friday 23rd April and Noon on Saturday 24th April. This has been set up to allow everyone living in or visiting the city to contribute to the bid by letting the judging panel know what kinds of cultural activities are happening in the city in just a single day.
Its simple! Just send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org saying what kind of cultural activity you are involved in or attending, and where it is/was.
You can attach images and videos but please check if you need permission from the venue or artists first.
The results will appear on a special website www.birminghamculture.org/blog throughout the 24 hour event. Don’t be put off if someone else has already mentioned your event – the more participants demonstrating support for the bid the better!
You can ‘Join the Big Conversation‘ – there are 21 days left. This asks:
- What Do You Do in your cultural life in Birmingham?
- What Would You Like to see happen as part of Birmingham City of Culture 2013?
- Where’s Your Favourite Spot to have a cultural experience in Birmingham?
As well as contributing new ideas, you can see and vote for other people’s ideas.
You can show people your favourite Birmingham Architecture. The bid team have also appealed for photographs of your favourite Birmingham buildings, to view or add to the collection on flickr.
