Gallery 37, Birmingham's long-established youth arts participation programme, is set for a major return in September 2016 here at Millennium Point – the heart of Birmingham’s Eastside and Knowledge Quarter!

Gallery 37 will provide free creative skills training to over fifty young people who aren’t currently in education or employment. This year, the emphasis will be on learning and developing practical skills, such as coding, song-writing or fashion, to be delivered by recognised industry leaders including ACE Dance & Music, Apples & Snakes and The BBC Academy.

2016's new-look Gallery 37 will feature community outreach workshops, public performances and industry work placements. Initiated by Birmingham City Council’s arts team in 1998, 2016’s Gallery 37 is to be produced by the award-winning Birmingham-based arts and cultural agency, Punch Records. Punch has a history of successfully delivering high-profile youth arts projects for over a decade, including their annual festival, BASS, by working on an international scale to support emerging artists.
