We all know what a great place Birmingham is to live, study, work and play in, but now there's a great chance to show the City off to the world as it bids to become UK City of Culture in 2013.
Birmingham has been shortlisted for the title of UK City of Culture 2013 and needs you to help the city win by taking part in a Blogging Day between noon today and noon tomorrow to tell the world about the cultural activities you enjoy in the City.
The blog will map of 24 hours in the cultural life of Birmingham and will form part of the bid by showing just how much goes on in the city and how important culture is to people.
All sorts of activities can be included such as arts and crafts workshops, book clubs, rehearsals and performances by professional and amateur companies, visual arts, museums, festivals and events, college projects, nights out at the theatre, comedy or live music and dance.
Everyone will be able to watch the day unfold live, as it happens, on a special website – and add their messages to the blog about what they are doing. The Blog is available at: http://blog.birminghamculture.org/.
It’s easy to take part – as simple as sending an email - and it will only take a minute or two to contribute!
Aston University is proud to support this campaign and wants to encourage you to lend your support too. You can find out more about the UK City of Culture bid and how you can get involved below by visiting www.birminghamculture.org.
