February Half-term week at BOM


BOM is going to be a hive of activity over the February half-term week. As part of our Live R&D exhibition we will be continuing to offer a free co-working space to anyone who wants to come and work at BOM. And don’t forget Nomad’s delicious ‘humble working lunch,’ including freshly-baked breads, cured meat & fish, home-made dairy and whatever seasonal fresh produce is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12 till 4pm.

On Monday 15th and Saturday 20th BOM Fellow Dan Burwood will be hosting free photography workshops for 5 to 12 year olds in conjunction with Some Cities CIC and Birmingham City Council to celebrate 2016 as The Year of Arts and Young People in Birmingham. The workshops are designed to help improve the participants’ photography skills with a range of activities that will help each participant think and explore how they view their community in fun and interactive ways. For more information and to reserve your place click here.

Tuesday 16th sees us getting the electronics out for the Booby Trapped Maze – a free workshop for kids exploring electrical engineering, robotics and programming skills. Using fun electronics kits and sensors, the children will design their own booby trap for the booby trapped maze and attempt to escape the trap-filled maze without setting off the alarms. The workshop is for children aged aged 6 to 11 years. Places are free but must be reserved. Email: education@bom.org.uk

 On Friday 19th, we are delighted to be involved with the launch of YAY 2016, A City Council initiative to promote and support arts and culture for, by and with young people.
