"ONE AREA THROUGH TIME"

THE BALSALL HEATH STORY

Welcome to our Virtual Exhibition, all about the history of Balsall Heath.

 

We call it ONE AREA THROUGH TIME

 

The Exhibition is the work of groups of young people (from 11-21 years old) from different parts of Birmingham. We came together, to look at the history of Balsall Heath, and the layers of immigration over time. We did lots of different activities ... Oral History interviews, drama performances, tours, talks, and special events... The project consultant was Professor Carl Chinn.

In this Exhibition, you will find

Project groups were based in seven venues: Al-Hijrah School, Calthorpe Academy, Eden Girls Leadership Academy, Four Dwellings Academy, George Dixon Academy, Newman University, and Turves Green Boys School. 

 

The project was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
