Putting arts on the map

BAA committee

A new group has been established to promote the arts in and around Bromsgrove to a wider audience.

Bromsgrove Arts Alive was formed following an initiative by Huw Moseley, the Arts Development Officer at Bromsgrove District Council, and its members aim to make information about the region’s entertainment more accessible to the general public.

The group, chaired by Jim Page (known particularly for The Housman Society), is made up of those already involved in various Bromsgrove organisations, and will hold quarterly meetings open to all interested parties.

Vice Chairman Keith Woolford said: “Currently there is no real ability of finding out what’s happening in our area – that’s something we hope to redress.”

Huw Moseley added, “There are some really good art organisations in the district and they now have a collective voice in the BAA.”

The founding group included Alistair Deighton, well known in the Bromsgrove arts world, who has since passed away.

BAA is holding a free Showcase Day on September 30 at artrix in Bromsgrove, where members will answer any questions.

Live performances on stage, exhibitions and craft workshops will add to the entertainment.
