Two new pieces of commissioned writing on the Balsall Heath Biennale are now available: 

Playing with time: the Biennale and Balsall Heath in the ‘seventies - Derek Horton

Cultural Intermediation and the Balsall Heath Biennale - Dr Saskia Warren

Dr Saskia Warren & Dr Stephen Forcer have also been successful in securing funding from the Communities and Culture Network+ on the Birmingham Surrealist Group in Balsall Heath. Building upon the platform and networks established by the Balsall Heath Biennale project Decorate Your House or Garden Competition - Surreal Theme, the research will investigate cultural, religious, linguistic and educational barriers to engagement, and the translation of humour within the context of Balsall Heath.
