It’s been a little over 5 months since we first mentioned The Community Lovers Guide To The Universe : Birmingham and we’ve finally found some time to get around to to approaching people to write chapters for us.
Jo Burrill and Birgit Kehler are going to be covering Change Kitchen, Emma Woolfe will be writing about The Friends Of Cotteridge Park, Christ Unitt will be telling us about Created in Birmingham and James Yarker will be writing about Stan’s Cafe “Of All The People In The World” and there are still some email responses pending from other interesting projects we’ve contacted.
We’re hoping that the The Community Lovers Guide: Birmingham will be ready to be published by early next year, but that of course all depends on us getting all the content we need in time. So while we’re making a start approaching the groups from the suggestions in the comments of the last post Can you think of any other people/projects that would like to contribute? A lot can happen in 5 months and we’re just wondering if there is anything happening that may have slipped under our radar.
Looks like the second ‘t’ in Unitt’s gone walkies! (feel free to delete this comment, btw)
great idea. would you be interested in bearwood on the edge of birmingham? what started as 6 crafty muthas has developed into a whole community of crafters and events supported by the amazingly warm and positive people of bearwood. you can get more info at craftymuthas.posterous.com and ‘the bearwood tapestry’ page on facebook and contact firstname.lastname@example.org
On a related Bearwood note, what about Warley Woods – http://www.warleywoods.org.uk/ – and nearby Lightwoods Park which has also recently become a community trust (or something similar). (note: I don’t have any actual involvement in either…)
