Black Hole Club May Day Reader

1 – 10 May 2020

Black Hole Club present a Mayday Reader of work and conversations that asks, what holds value for us in this present?  Who is there for us right now and who do we want to hear from? Do we want to start or stop, in times marked by rolling news, tech trillionaires, isolated shopping and clapping for our carers.

With the temporary closure of Vivid Projects physical space in March, Black Hole Club’s work and development as a cohort has shifted to online platforms. This initiated conversations, exchanges and projects that will develop through the year. The reader features current works by: Alis Oldfield, Ambie Drew, Ambience Factory, De’Anne Crooks, Emily Scarrott, Jas Singh, …kruse, Kühle Wampe, Leanne O’Connor & Larissa Shaw, Rosa Francesca and Rosa Postlethwaite.

The Mayday Reader can be accessed on Black Hole Club’s website and by direct link and will be shared via Twitter and Instagram. To access the full content you need to download the reader to your computer.

Come and join the conversation.

Alternative Digbeth First Friday

Whilst we cannot meet in person this First Friday, we are calling on our audiences to support those most in need. If you usually buy a drink or snacks during your First Friday night out, how about supporting some of the charities providing crucial support to our communities during this incredibly tough time, by making a donation to them instead? Our suggestions include  St. Basils, The Trussell Trust and the Cooperation Birmingham solidarity kitchen.

#staysafe, enjoy the art this #digbethfirstfriday and support some brilliant Birmingham charities.
