New street fair to launch in Digbeth

Sunday Share aims to encourage diversity and wellbeing.

Rea Street South in Digbeth will be the location for a brand-new community sharing event to be launched on Sunday 1st July, from 7am – 11am.

Called Birmingham’s Sunday Share, this event aims to encourage the diverse community in the city to come together, meet, chat, share, sell and take part in art, music, and wellbeing activities.

The event will feature a variety of stalls where people can meet neighbours, make friends and snag a bargain right in the middle of the city. It will be great for families too with live music from talented local musicians, arts activities and interactive games. The event is a collaboration between Friction Arts and The Active Well Being Society, both based in Birmingham.

Sandra Hall, Co-Director of Friction Arts said “Birmingham’s Sunday Share is a very exciting initiative for us. As a professional arts organisation we work with communities both nationally and internationally. Through our work we know that sharing experiences like this help to bring people together so we very much look forward to welcoming families, friends and those new to the community.”

Friction Arts are teaming up with The Active Wellbeing Society who work collaboratively with organisations, institutions, communities and individuals to create a society where people have the autonomy, capacity, resources and skills to become the architects of their own destiny, creating and sustaining happy, healthy communities.

Karen Creavin, Director of The Active Wellbeing Society, added, “This a very exciting community event and one which we hope will become a regular feature of the Digbeth area. There’s going to be a lot of arts activities and opportunities to meet people and we hope the community will embrace Birmingham’s Sunday Share and come along.”

The aim will be to hold a regular eve nt with all proceeds being reinvested to ensure that it continues and that there are professional cultural, social and arts activities created in response to the community that engage with it.
