Could your photos help shape Birmingham’s New Neighbourhood Strategy?

Do you have a camera or smartphone? Can you use social media or email? Do you know what works well, and what needs changing in your neighbourhood? If so, Fair Brum want to involve you in shaping Birmingham’s new neighbourhood strategy.

Launched on July 23rd, “Place Matters” is a photography project that aims to capture images of the city’s diverse neighbourhoods from different perspectives, to show what is distinctive about different neighbourhoods across Birmingham and what local people value in their local environment.

Can you take pictures that show what you like about your area, what makes it unique, or what  you would like to change?

If so, just them to any social media site using the tag #fairbrum (or email it to together with where why and when you took the shot and Geotag if possible!

There are some useful guidelines to doing this on various social media platforms here

The project is part of a summer of engagement activities to help shape a new neighbourhood strategy for the city. The images submitted will be made available via an online archive, as an interactive map and in local exhibitions.

The project will run until 31 August 2013.
