Make My City Fair Initiative

As part of the recent Make My City Fair initiative, we are conducting a research project on the best ways to communicate the impacts of austerity in Birmingham and are looking for help from those working in the community. We are inviting representatives and those with lived experience from many different kinds of services from across Birmingham (i.e. voluntary sector, Healthcare and related services, Education, the Police and Crime, businesses and SMEs and the Creative Sector, the Trades Unions) to discuss the ways in which austerity has impacted them and their services. 

Specifically, we are looking for people to be part of a small recorded focus group, in which we discuss the way austerity has impacted services and the best ways to communicate this. We intend on hiring a live illustrator for this session to record visually the case studies we cover, with the hope that some of these materials could be used to communicate the impacts of austerity clearly.

We hope to conduct this small focus group on Wednesday 8th January, in the Curzon Building of Birmingham City University (east side of the City Centre) from 6-8pm. Refreshments will be provided.

If you are interested in taking part and available, please RSVP to this email ( as soon as possible.
