Greater Birmingham CompositionAbout Us                 What's nEXT

We are an open community of individuals who are proud of Birmingham as a great place to live, work and play. The people who have grown up here are creative and occasionally self-deprecating. Their humility is a strength, allowing them to put the world before themselves.

Our mission is to build a better image for Birmingham that the whole region and its diverse citizens, communities and companies can share in.

"Brummies", as they are affectionally known, have a rich history of fostering global change, and look forward to building a better future. The bicycles, cars and planes made here are marvels of ingenuity, and are featured in the annual Birmingham Made Me festival. Symphony Hall offers acoustically superb musical experiences. Moseley offers jazz and folk festivals, and the Black Country is the home of heavy metal.

The city's architecture includes the acclaimed new Library, Bullring and Cube, as well as the classical Town Hall and Council House which contains the wide ranging Museum and Art Gallery, and offers free admission, as does the Barber Institute for Fine Arts.

Birmingham is where all the the world comes to live.  Our 1.1 million inhabitants come from 187 countries, giving each of its many villages a different flair, including Balsall Heath with its Balti food. Birmingham is increasingly known for fine dining, with a growing number of Michelin-starred restaurants.

Most of all, our region is defined by the ideas and inspirations of its vibrant mix of individuals.  Those from the Lunar Society have repeatedly changed the world we live in, and formed Science Capital to bring together minds interested in tackling global challenges. With more universities than any region outside London, and headquarters for many global businesses, Greater Birmingham is a great place to visit, grow a company or invest.

It spans the Black Country, Coventry, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Cannock Chase, Dudley, Lichfield, Redditch, Solihull, Stratford-on-Avon, Staffordshire, Sutton Coldfield,Tamworth, Walsall, Warwick, Wolverhampton and Wyre Forest. Its enterprise zones and can be seen in this flyover video.

Clearly it is impossible to capture the amazing diversity present here in a single image.  Its people, places and products form the facets of a complex identity. Our team felt that re-imagining our city was warranted given the increasing bashing it received from some voices in the press. After consulting with a few advisors, we have come up with a set of images. We're making these freely available under a creative commons licence, and will donate proceeds to CureLeukaemia to 
bring pioneering drug and transplant treatments to blood cancer patients.
