It was a grey and gloomy day on Erdington High Street. Secret City hovered in the shelter of a shopping arcade awaiting the arts bus. With the loan of a wall-papering table from a friendly shopkeeper, we made birds from maps, and invited people to add a line or two to a collective poem, Erdington Birdington.
We were joined on the Arts Bus by Alex from Project Pigeon who brought four of her homing pigeons – feathery additions that drew lots of interest.
There was a great deal of beautiful work, including rich contributions to the living story section of the project. If you contributed or are curious then you can listen to the archive of stories by clicking here. As always and as promised they will be used to create a collective living story, similar to Walls and Water.
