Digbeth First Friday

Every first Friday of the month Digbeth (a quite industrial part of Birmingham) comes alive with pop-up events, street food, live music, exhibitions and much more. I went to the Digbeth First Friday event in the beginning of July to explore Birmingham’s contemporary art scene and was really impressed with the whole thing! First of all I think Digbeth with its obscure red brick buildings has a really nice vibe. I went to a few different events including a Pop-up Waste Food Cafe hosted by Digbeth Community Garden and Centrala Gallery where PIND, an international art project with site specific work by the Estonian artists Carl-Robert Kagge, Anton Koovit and Uku Sepsivart are currently exhibited. I definitely enjoyed the First Friday, Digbeth offered a creative environment and the pay-as-you-feel street food was absolutely delicious!

PIND: Three artists with the street art background from Tallin, Estonia, Carl-Robert Kagge, Anton Koovit and Uku Sepsivart, have taken over Centrala Gallery inside and out transforming the gallery itself into a work of art depicting produce and items that are symbolic of Estonian life. Read more about the project here.
