Collecting Birmingham: Who Is Birmingham?

Birmingham Museums

Discover new collections that reflect the experiences of diverse Birmingham people – from working lives, to community activists and protest movements.

This is the final exhibition of the Collecting Birmingham project, an innovative acquisitions and engagement project that has collected objects and oral histories over the past three years, focusing on stories of people from Aston, Soho, Nechells and Ladywood.

This exhibition will not only showcase the objects that have been collected on the project but more importantly, it will highlight the people of Birmingham who have generously contributed their stories, and who have shared difficult and complex histories and issues.

People’s lived experiences, their achievements, their struggles and the histories that have been written-out of the popular historical narrative are an essential part of what the Collecting Birmingham project has learnt and collected.
