Launched on the 26th May, the Big Brum BioBlitz was all about encouraging families, young people and adults to explore their natural environment and carry out their very own BioBlitz! As we were spending more time in our homes, nature was taking over our city, giving us chance to get involved in environmental science and record what was happening – and the people of Birmingham didn’t need much persuading! Our iNaturalist project page saw 620 new species identified during the BioBlitz! .
Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) is back! To celebrate we’ve put together a list of 11 of our favourite artworks and things to see as you explore the reopened Level 2 galleries.
In the summer of 2018, I showed two works for my BA Fine Art Degree Show: Not Your Fantasy I and Not Your Fantasy II.
I’m Alexis, and I am currently completing a Museum Futures traineeship at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, with the goal of kickstarting a career within the cultural heritage sector.
In August I shared a little bit about my experiences of exploring nature and photographing butterflies in My Big Brum BioBlitz blog post.
For many of us, lockdown has been a time of digital discovery, and volunteers on the Artist Research Team have been online too investigating the personalities behind works in Birmingham’s collection.
It has been an interest of mine for many years to record our local wildlife and having lived round Birmingham for most of my life I have found some of the best places to do it.
