Stirchley Happenings at Stirchley Community Market

March 4, 2012

This week sees the return of Stirchley Community Market, mainly inside Stirchley United Working Men’s Club, but with some brave souls outside: including the Ikon gallery on Birmingham City Council’s Mobile Arts Unit, showcasing artist Gillian Wearing’s search for ‘A Real Birmingham Family.’ This is the last month for nominations, and a family can be whoever you think it is – traditional families, foster families, a group of friends or a single person. The winning family will be cast as a bronze statue and unveiled in situ at the opening of the new Library of Birmingham. Well worth a go!

We’ll be there talking about our next film night, where we’re venturing into town to promote Stirchley at the Flatpack Festival, as part of a showcase of different film screening groups from around Birmingham: so come along and pick up a Flatpack brochure from us, or watch this space for more details next week.

Talking of films, here at Stirchley Happenings HQ we’ve been watching a fair few recently, and we were wondering of a way of sharing some great cinema with you. So at the market we’ll have a few select DVD’s as part of ‘Travelling Bug House Recommends’, come along and have a look at our offerings, and take home a fantastic film: we hope to see you there!
