Until tomorrow you’ll be able to take part in Burningham, an installation designed and created by architects EXYZT, and the headline project of Fierce Festival 2011. A multitude of events are taking place on Eastside Green (opposite Millennium Point), including live graffiti battles, film screenings, debates and talks, all aiming to look deeper into the heart of ‘Burningham’ and find out what makes it tick. On April 26th, the EXYZT container will be relocated to Moor Street Ringway in Birmingham; a very public exhibition of the work and explorations of the event.
At the Ride In – Wednesday 20th April, 5-7pm or 7.30-9:30pm
“At The Ride In” will be an evening of films, talks and informal workshops promoting alternative transport in a fun way to the wider community in Birmingham. The EXYZT site provided inspiration for a cycle-thru cinema whereby an informal setting and fully accessible screening at the EXYZT containers will make people feel welcome to drop in and out.
Live Graffiti Battle – Thursday 21st, 6-9pm
Three of Birmingham’s biggest street artists compete and combine to create their own answers to the question “What is Burningham?”. Tempo and As1, legends of the Birmingham street scene, will battle one another as they seek answers to what ‘burns’ in Birmingham’s soul.
