Generation DIY: Birmingham

The ticketing company is shedding light on the young promoting talent in the local scenes of five UK cities – this week's instalment travels to Birmingham

By Molly Long on 28 Jun 2018

The latest instalment of Eventbrite’s Generation DIY travels to Birmingham to uncover the inner workings of some of the city’s most successful events. The video is the fourth in the series, following in depth looks into the nightlife of London, Bristol and Glasgow.

In it, we see a cross section of the work of seven young promoters are doing in the city – from comedy and poetry, to club nights. Those involved are working to promote the interests of people from all walks of life: Aliyah Hasinah’s events bring underrepresented artists to the forefront whilst Dan Brown’s club nights are a driving force behind the Birmingham LGBT scene.

The video premiered last night at the Hare and Hounds in Birmingham. Next week’s video will take a look at the work going on in Manchester and will be shown at The Deaf Institute.
