I am Paramjit Sehmi and I have been volunteering for Collecting Birmingham archiving and documenting some amazing acquisitions.
In June, Birmingham Museum’s Collecting Birmingham Team met in the lounge of the Wellington Pub to collect memories of Birmingham city centre’s now demolished Paradise Forum complex, including the iconic Central Library.
I have passed Donald Rodney’s work Land of Milk and Honey II many times on my visits to Birmingham Museum and felt incredibly proud to have an artist from the city I grew up and a black artist exhibit in a world class museum.
My name is Charlotte; I work as a Community Engagement Officer on the Collecting Birmingham Project.
In a blog post in September, we invited Birmingham people to come and have their say about the objects Birmingham Museums should be collecting.
As the Collecting Birmingham project builds momentum we are delighted to be able to introduce four new members of our volunteer team; our Collecting Birmingham Ambassadors!.
In a blog post last month we introduced Birmingham Museums’ Collecting Birmingham project and today we would love to invite you to take part! .
