The Midlands Enlightenment is a new monthly meetup for RSA Fellows at 1000 Trades in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
In a welcoming, informal setting, each meetup will hear from someone who, one way or another, is undertaking pioneering work – helping to secure a new Enlightenment here in the Midlands.
At this meet-up we’re delighted to introduce Jon Bloomfield. Jon will be introducing his forthcoming book, Our City: Migrants and the Making of Modern Birmingham. Based on original interviews, this book tells the story of fifty migrants to Birmingham from all walks of life: first and second generation; men and women; from thirteen different countries from Ireland to India, Pakistan to Poland, the Caribbean to Somalia.
Come along to find out more and meet with other local Fellows.
