Kalsoom Begum, Ops Manager at Great Barr Premier Inn says:
I love the art gallery and museum. You can walk along the canal where there are lots of traditional restaurants. It’s nice to have a drink outside in the summer or by a log fire in the winter”. 

Eastside Projects

Opening in 2008, Eastside Projects aims to support artists, projects and independent culture in Digbeth. This artist-run gallery offers experimental contemporary art exhibitions in a great old industrial space. Regularly changing its displays by re-using and re-working previous exhibits, this gallery really pushes the boundaries with its art.
