I took two groups of our BA students around Birmingham this week.
Our mission: to find where the creative industries hang out, and to think about how design lives and breathes in the real world.
We spent three hours and covered a lot of ground. Unfortunately we didn’t get as far as Ikon at Brindley Place.
Here’s our route:View Google Map

I have left this map open, so please feel free to add to it.
The students will be uploading photos and thoughts on the trip to http://www.flickr.com/groups/mc436oct08/ over the coming week. If you have any thoughts then do share with them!
The project was in part inspired by Stef Lewandowski’s creativity audit (http://www.steflewandowski.com/2008/09/a-creative-director-for-birmingham/ ) and in part by loking at Birmingham Flickrmeets (http://www.flickr.com/groups/birmingham_flickrmeets/ ).
