ecobirmingham has worked as a partner with a number of arts organisations over recent years such as the Longbridge Public Arts Project, Ampersand Projects, MAC Birmingham, Cathy Wade, The Bone Ensemble and The General Public. We are now embarking on a new arts strategy which will see bigger projects reaching further and engaging specific communities across the city.
Our approach is underpinned by always seeking to Unearth Unheard Voices in order to challenge the notion of the traditional green audience. We believe that as climate change effects everyone, everyone’s voice should be heard. We will work with arts partners to deliver provoking arts projects that inspire action, debate and thinking in others.

The Green Lens project saw ecobirmingham work in collaboration with Ampersand Projects to develop a new participatory arts project as a new area of work for the organisation. It allowed us to develop and build our engagement with 16-25 year olds (including the deaf community) across the city. It’s a creative consultation process that seeks to Unearth Unheard Voices, help people take positive action and speak ‘truth to power’ and was supported by Arts Council England, Garfield Weston Foundation and Edward Cadbury Trust.
Green Lens was an open call photography and film competition, exhibition and digital archive that gave young people the opportunity to express their hopes, fears, concerns and opportunities for their green future. The exhibition was held in late 2018 at Midlands Arts Centre, Birmingham. Read the full report here.
