Keep an eye out for Ort Gallery, the new community engaged art space and cafe in Balsall Heath.
Ort Gallery is a new artist run gallery space in Balsall Heath, an underprivileged neighbourhood in Birmingham.
The main aim is to support emerging artists and create a vibrant cultural atmosphere for the local community. The exhibition programme for 2013 is funded by the Arts Council England and the Hall Green Arts and Mike Holland Trust.
Entry is free of charge with a small fee to attend workshops. Director Josephine Reichert and her team of volunteers want to bring good quality art that questions the local politics, the economic situation and the multiculturalism found in Birmingham to a neighbourhood that is lacking cultural events.
They want to encourage the community to be actively involved in the projects and artist are welcome to submit proposals for future projects.
