Posted by Tracey Thorne on 1st November 2010

2 Comments so far. We'd love to know what you think.

Many people will no the Harriet Tubman Bookshop on Grove Lane which has been closed for sometime. I was approached several weeks ago by Hybird who are running a project across the city centres to open up empty shops to encoarge people to use these spaces and run arts activties from them. I am really glad to see that the team have been able to take forward getting an empty shop open for the INHABIT Project here in Handsworth and look forward to visiting. The team are keen to here from people that may wish to get involved and use the space see information below.

I will post information on activties and opening times once they are confirmed.
