BOM is a centre for art, technology and science based in central Birmingham, championing “creative innovation with purpose”.
Our gallery space is free to enter, and presents cutting edge digital artworks and exhibitions that spark debate about technology and scientific progress.
BOM is dedicated to positive social impact in all that we do. Our exhibitions and events explore topical issues in digital culture and science which impact on human lives. Our education work engages excluded children, young people and adults in creative technology programmes, with a particular interest in neurodiversity and technology.
BOM is born from hacker culture. But unlike other hackspaces that are filled with tools and operate on a membership model, our building is publicly accessible with free exhibitions and events.
Our on-site BOM Café is very much an extension of everything we’re about. Serving organic, fairtrade coffee, teas, home-made cakes and ethically sourced food, it is a little haven in an otherwise bustling city centre.
At the heart of BOM is a community of Fellows, a group of hugely talented artists, scientists and technologists, who use our studios and co-working spaces to develop innovative and impactful work. The BOM Fellows all fuel, and are fuelled by, BOM’s ethos and help us achieve our mission.
