There will be a creche provided for under 5s.
Children’s programme for 5-12 year olds will be run by CURBS.
This year we want to encourage youth to participate in the sessions and share their views and feelings. However, there will be some youth sessions, between 11.00-1.00 and 5.00-6.00, and there will be a hang out space for over 12s available all day.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s Community Weekend is called:
Who is my neighbour?
We will be looking at answers to this question on a Global, National, Local and Personal scale. There will be music from John Froud, input from Refugee Voices, and a special appearance by ‘Sandbanksy’. There will also be a children’s programme, run by CURBs, and youth activities.
Join us at IMC, Birmingham on Saturday 15th – Sunday 16th October 2016
Community Weekend Tickets
Welcome to Urban Expression’s new website! Updated content, new features, and hopefully easier to read and navigate.
We’re always looking for feedback, so please feel free to get in touch with any comments or queries!
This year’s Community Weekend “Feast of Fools”, was held Saturday 17 – Sunday 18 October 2015 at IMC in Birmingham, and was a massive success.
Thank you all so much for coming and sharing your stories (and your desserts!). As always, it was a great opportunity to meet together, chat, eat and have our thinking stretched.
A massive thank you to Alex Ellish for all her hard work in putting together the programme, and Rachel Jay for her tireless work ensuring everything ran smoothly.
Out next Community Weekend will be 15-16 October 2016. If you’re not involved with Urban Expression at all, but would like to know a bit more about us, this is the perfect place to come and learn more. It’s laid back and friendly, but full of opportunities to learn from and share with one another.
The idea of this is that it is team specific.
