The Creative Republic bods are about again… More often they can be found drumming up interesting new ideas for the West Mids, but this time it’s all about the City Centre:
We are delighted to be hosting the second in a series of new events designed to inform and update you about key projects and issues affecting the city and region.
This time our focus is the Big City Plan, the new masterplan for Birmingham city centre. The Plan was launched in February 2008 and the City Council is keen to engage with a large cross section of people to help shape the future of Birmingham. This event is being held with the support of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and features leading speakers:
- Mark Ball, Head of Events and Exhibitions at the Royal Shakespeare Company
- Cllr Mike Whitby, Leader of Birmingham City Council
- Jerry Blackett, Chief Executive of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce
While the Big City Plan clearly embraces the vitality and energy that a thriving creative and cultural sector can bring to the city, this is your chance to find out how the plan will affect YOU and your business. What do you need or want in the next 20 years to make Birmingham the city in which you can thrive, not just survive? The Big City Plan has great ambition: but it will only succeed with the drive and determination of all its citizens. Creative Republic gives you the opportunity to make your voice heard where it matters – with the instigator of this exciting process.
…And if anybody from BCC is reading this, I’d still quite like to know exactly how Eastside Park is going to turn out!
