Behind The Scenes With The Culture Catwalk Team

This September, the biggest arts festival in Brum, Birmingham Weekender returns to takeover the city from the 22nd – 24th September featuring the performance-led Culture Catwalk.

This will mean plenty of opportunities for you to get involved with – or get excited for – Birmingham’s most creative weekend of the year. Our Culture Catwalk stage showcases the West Midlands region’s finest talent ranging from all types of acts – solo performances, groups, poetry, dance and everything in between.

Over the next few months we will be documenting the process of creating the Culture Catwalk on our blog and social media; as well as sharing Birmingham’s incredible creative scene with you – look out for more introductions in future blogs where you’ll meet the team and get to know a little more about the work behind the scenes.

Would you like to perform at the Culture Catwalk?

Our call out for performers has officially been launched (yay) and we’re enjoying all of your expressed interest so far – be sure to sign up here if you haven’t already; we’re looking for a wide range of artists from across all art forms including music, fashion, performance art, digital, comedy, live art, spoken word and dance. The deadline to apply is Friday 11th August 2017, make sure to spread the word. In the meantime, while we await your applications, we want to know what #BeingABrummie means to you – use the hashtag to let us know and see what fellow Brummie’s think too!
