Down Central Street (St Martin's Walk) at the Bullring & Grand Central Birmingham, from Rotunda Square, going down was Brum's Big Splash. In association with the Birmingham Hippodrome. A long water slide basically.

Brum's Big Splash, part of Birmingham Weekender at the Bullring





The Birmingham Weekender returned once again, this time the August Bank Holiday Weekend on the 27th and 28th August 2022. Down Central Street (St Martin's Walk) at the Bullring & Grand Central Birmingham, from Rotunda Square, going down was Brum's Big Splash. In association with the Birmingham Hippodrome. A long water slide basically.


Brum's Big Splash

Heading up St Martin's Walk at the Bullring & Grand Central Birmingham (renamed Central Street) was Brum's Big Splash. It was installed and tested the day before on Friday 26th August 2022. But opened on Saturday 27th August 2022, just after 12pm. People who wanted to ride it had to book up a space in advance, but was apparently some walk-up slots.

I headed up to Costa Coffee in Next, and managed to get a window seat, and got these views, as I saw some people slide down the splash-way!

This was all part of the Birmingham Weekender, which was held on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th August 2022.

PoliNations coming to Victoria Square in September 2022

PoliNations is coming to Victoria Square from the 2nd to 18th September 2022. A free event. Following the end of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, this is part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, and they are putting it up in the last three weeks of August 2022. Elliott got a first glimpse on Saturday 20th August 2022 on passing through Victoria Square.

PoliNations coming to Victoria Square in September 2022





PoliNations is coming to Victoria Square from the 2nd to 18th September 2022. A free event. Following the end of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, this is part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, and they are putting it up in the last three weeks of August 2022. Elliott got a first glimpse on Saturday 20th August 2022 on passing through Victoria Square.


PoliNations is part of Unboxed Creativity in the UK. During the last three weeks of August 2022, after the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games things were dismantled (including Hew Locke's Foreign Exchange on the Queen Victoria statue). PoliNations moved in.

The free event is due to take place from the 2nd to 18th September 2022.

Step into a spectacular city-centre garden of magical proportions where you will be welcomed by an epic array of colour and nature.  

Giant architectural trees and thousands of plants will transform Victoria Square into an urban oasis, which will host free events, workshops and performances including live music, dance, spoken word and drag.

This supernatural wonderland uncovers the origin stories of the plants we know so well – daisies, pansies, apple trees, roses – in fact these, and most of the plants we see in our gardens are not from the UK. They tell the story of journeys, movement, dispersal, and new roots. 

PoliNations is a celebration of colour, beauty, and of natural diversity. Explore, enjoy and be your true unique self. You can experience music from around the world, an incredible light show each evening, and a grand finale like no other where the tree’s canopies will burst into a joyful cloud of confetti and colour.  

This is Carnival and Holi combined in one brilliant, messy, playful party and everyone is invited.

 

I first spotted the giant trees from Chamberlain Square.

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(1).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

 

Heading into Victoria Square, the PoliNations construction is all fenced off at the moment.

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(3).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

 

They encourage people to get public transport to PoliNations, including the West Midlands Metro, get off at Town Hall Tram Stop. Also in walking distance of the main railway stations and your bus stops.

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(4).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

 

The statue of Queen Victoria has been returned to normal after two months as Hew Locke's Foreign Exchange.

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(5).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

 

Key to the City ended on the 7th August, so it will no longer be possible to get views of Victoria Square from the 18th floor balcony like before.

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(9).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

 

Heading down Pinfold Street, then catching a view of a tram heading up towards Victoria Square and the PoliNations trees.

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(10).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

dndimg alt="PoliNations" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/PoliNations%20Vic%20Sq%2020082022%20(11).JPG" style="width: 100%" />

 

I will probably get more photos of PoliNations over the next couple of weekends, and probably in September as well (if time).

Victoria Square - View from 103, Key to the City

In June 2022, Elliott was gifted the Key to the City by the lady behind the 103 Colmore Row Twitter and Instagram accounts. He visited 103 Colmore Row for views from the 18th floor balcony four times between June and August 2022. Here are the changing views of Victoria Square. Including during the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Victoria Square - View from 103, Key to the City





In June 2022, Elliott was gifted the Key to the City by the lady behind the 103 Colmore Row Twitter and Instagram accounts. He visited 103 Colmore Row for views from the 18th floor balcony four times between June and August 2022. Here are the changing views of Victoria Square. Including during the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.


Having missed the February 2022 meet at 103 Colmore Row, Elliott was promised to get the key to 103 Colmore Row. He was gifted it by the lady who runs the 103 Colmore Row Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Between June and August, he went up four times. Usually as the view of Victoria Square kept changing. He always went on Saturday's.

Every time you arrive, you show your key to one of the Key to the City volunteers. The wait in the foyer could be anywhere between 20 minutes and 50 minutes (especially near the end of the Commonwealth Games). You would get a slot of 10 to 15 minutes to go up the fastest lift to the 18th floor, for views from the balcony.

It was an opportunity to get views of Victoria Square. When street art was painted ahead of the games, Elliott went twice on two Saturday's in July. And one final time in August on Super Saturday, while the 60th Jamaican Independence Day was being celebrated.

 

11th June 2022

General views down to Victoria Square from the 18th floor balcony of 103 Colmore Row.

23rd July 2022

One week on, and the Victoria Square Fan Zone was almost complete, several days before the start of the Commonwealth Games. Also to see the Connections street art in Victoria Square fully complete. There was now a stage in the square, and would be the finish point for the Birmingham Marathona week later. The West Midlands Metro trams were also now running all the way between Wolverhampton St George's and Edgbaston Village.

6th August 2022

Super Saturday, and the final weekend of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, and the City Centre was very busy. It was also the 60th anniversary of Jamaican Independence which was being celebrated in Victoria Square at the time. This would be my final visit to 103 Colmore Row, before Key to the City ended the following day.

Thank you to 103 Colmore Row, the Key to the City volunteers, to Fierce and Yale Locks.

 

Next up is PoliNations in September 2022, but will have to get views from Victoria Square itself.

Birmingham - Place-shaping, place-making and promotion of place

Birmingham - Place-shaping, place-making and promotion of place





This post will explain how this unique collaboration and partnership with community allows people to share and follow their passion for their place and feel part of Birmingham's future


Place-shaping, place-making, promotion of place and the continued growth of a digitally engaged community as a legacy of the Commonwealth Games.

Our story

At the time the announcement was made that Birmingham would be hosting the Commonwealth Games, we were convinced about the value of engaging community in a huge collaboration for place-shaping, place-making and the promotion of place. See our video below created back in 2020.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/culture.jpg" />

Select HERE for video.

Interest in collaborating was huge

Interest from community in getting involved in the largest digital collaboration (we believe) of any city was huge and soon we had people sending us content of the places and the Birmingham Passions they were keen to promote.

This content is now contained in 100s of features and displayed on multiple maps.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/e1V4.jpg" />

Select HERE for Birmingham Gems video.

Promotion of place

Using this map, residents and visitors can explore the City and its Gems.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/BirminghamGemsMap.jpg" />

Select HERE for Birmingham Gems map.

Making and Shaping of place

Using this map, residents can engage in the development and future of their place.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/itsyourbuildmap.jpg" />

Select HERE for Birmingham development map.

Productive place-shaping and creative conversations

This in turn has led to place-making creative conversations exploring the link between creativity, place and community.

Select HERE for one of our Creative Conversations videos.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/L5a.jpg" />

Select HERE for another of our Creative Conversations videos.

More Gems featured by community

It has led to more and more Birmingham Gems being featured with creatives generating considerable interest across Community.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/KK.jpg" />

Select HERE for another of our videos focussed on creativity.

More maps and more trails

The growth in the number of community contributors has led to many maps and trails being created for well-being and a promotion of specific passions.

Here’s one covering Parks and Open Spaces.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/Parks.jpg" />

Select HERE for Parks and Open Spaces video.

Over 1.2 million views already

The digital platform we launched last year has now received almost 1,200,000 views, increasing by 15,000 every week.

Plans over the next two weeks during the Commonwealth Games

The Commonwealth Games, we knew would provide the added incentive for people to engage with their place. We have created a digitial space where they can do just this.

We also knew that this would lead to significant social and economic impact and this would reflect the digital reach that could be achieved by all the programmes the CG2022 team and BCC are supporting and funding.

The following shows the flexibility and adaptability of our maps so that Birmingham Gems and Birmingham Passions can be showcased alongside Commonwealth Games community-related events.

Here’s a map showing the baton relay stops and other events.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/cgm1.jpg" />

Here we have added the passion of public art in and around the city.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/cgm2.jpg" />

We can add rivers, canals and open spaces.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/cgm3.jpg" />

We can add History as a passion.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/cgm6.jpg" />

We can add modern architecture and classic architecture.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/cgm5.jpg" />

This is the view if we include all passions and places of interest across the city.

dndimg border="0" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/videos/videocovers/cgm4.jpg" />

 

Resulting in .....

... a massive digital legacy for the city and its neighbourhoods following the Commonwealth Games with more people more aware of what the city offers.

..... a digital space populated by community for community.

..... place-making, place-shaping and promotion of place in practice.

Plans for the remainder of 2022

Engaged and connected digital neighbourhoods.

The plan post Commonwealth Games is to roll out digital spaces into the city’s neighbourhoods with the support of people passionate about their city. This could well provide a digital vehicle for volunteers and those people active in supporting the Games.

It will also open up digital skills exchanges whereby young people act as digital ambassadors in their community.

Such a venture will build on the awareness and inspiration created by the Be Bold Be Birmingham campaign.

Together with the help of community, work to show how a digital neighbourhood would look and function has already started and several of Bimingham’s councillors have expressed an interest in finding out how their neighbourhood could be involved.

Let’s connect
