"Birmingham: A Sense of Place" - monologues & photos

Birmingham: A Sense of Place was a collaboration between WLPG and the Festival Symposium strand, curated by Emelie Fitzgibbon and Philip Hardy of Ireland - a part of the On the Edge Festival, the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering, Birmingham, July 2016.
