Our celebration of arts, culture and creativity

Each year, we celebrate the wealth and diversity of our students' talent with a series of events. The latest Inspired festival, which ran from 22 May – 28 June 2014, featured concerts, performances, exhibitions, design and written work in venues across Birmingham.

The events were the perfect opportunity for our students to showcase their excellent work to members of the press and the public.
