Welcome to CAFE Arts, the Arts Forum for Erdington covering Tyburn; Erdington; Stockland Green and Kingstanding Wards.

We are a network of people who love the arts and want to see it happen in our local area.  A mixture of people, groups and organisations who work in the arts, those who make it happen voluntary and those who deliver other services locally and see the arts playing a role in the community.

Anyone can get involved, so if you are interested get in touch with the Local Arts Forum Coordinator for Erdington Claire Marshall through this site and by emailing claire.marshall@mac.com

Cafe Arts is 1 of 10 Arts Fora’s in Birmingham as part of Birmingham City Council’s Cultural Commissioning Service activity.  There is an Arts Forum in each of the city’s Districts: Edgbaston; Erdington; Hall Green; Hodge Hill; Ladywood; Northfield; Perry Barr; Selly Oak; Sutton Coldfield; Yardley.

Each Arts Forum also has an Arts Champion: one of the city’s large arts organisations who gets to be part of the locality for a 3 year period.  From April 2014 to 2017 this is the Birmingham Rep Theatre.
