Balsall Heath in Conversation

A MELA Social Enterprise project with Friction Arts, Dan Burwood and Ana de Matos, supported by Arts Council England.

May – October 2016

We wanted to engage Balsall Heath residents to creatively imagine the Moseley Road as a new social space for different cultures to mix.

Friction, Ana and Dan did this by setting up ‘The People’s Palace of Juice’ on the Moseley Road at different times in July and September. In return for a juice people shared their stories, conversations and perceptions.

These stories were shared through photography and video as part of the World Café event on 1st October, and at Clifton Road Mosque interfaith day on 12th November.

The films and portraits will be exhibited at ORT cafe after November, date tbc. You can see a selection of the portraits here.
