“We started Birmingham Music Network and The Screen Image Network to act as a meeting point and gathering place for the regions Music and Film community. Together we are creating a new way to work. The two networks are an organic thing that have grown directly out of the enthusiasm of a disparate group of creative individuals. The meetings are for people who are trying to find a different way to make a life and express their ideas outside the structures of conventional business models, academia, government and the funding machinery of the West Midlands.”
The next Music Network will be led by Mark Badger. The meeting starts at 4pm and will finish at 5.30pm on Thursday 31st March 2016 in Room 435 at Birmingham City University, Millennium Point, Curzon Street, Birmingham, B4 7XG. Updates will be posted on our Twitter

In the days of early apartheid rule half a century ago, on 26 June 1955, over 3 000 representatives of resistance organisations made their way through police cordons to gather on a dusty square in Kliptown, Soweto, 40km south of Johannesburg.
This was the Congress of the People, who met to draw up the Freedom Charter, an alternative vision to the repressive policies of the apartheid state.
At the time, Nelson Mandela had to stay concealed to avoid the police. On the second day, the authorities broke up the gathering, but not before the charter was adopted as a guide document. It remains the cornerstone of African National Congress (ANC) policy to this day, and is seen by many as the foundation of South Africa’s 1996 Constitution.
That dusty field has now been declared a national heritage site, and on 26 June 2005 President Thabo Mbeki lit a flame of freedom in Kliptown to mark the opening of the Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication – and 50 years of the Freedom Charter.
