Start at Adam and Eve Pub, Bradford Street
25th May 7-9pm
Join us as part of Birmingham Architectural Festival for a photowalk to explore the Eastside of Birmingham’s City Centre. Along the way we will soak up some of the areas rich industrial heritage and look at some of the newer developments on this this guided urban walk. By using photography we can consider the contrasting architecture and its relationship with the local urban environment. The circular walk will start on Bradford Street in Digbeth and take a route through much of the Eastside of the city looking at the old and new architecture, a few abandoned sites and an old Victorian toilet thrown in for good measure. Street art fans have your cameras ready as we will be walking past some of the best street art in Birmingham, proving an interest contrast and chance to capture this ever changing street scene. No experience required. Participants should bring either a camera or smart phone.
The timing of this walk is intentional for attendees to catch the sunset.
