As part of our role in crafting a framework for Digbeth, we're participating in an upcoming webinar to discuss what currently makes Digbeth a unique place, and how its history will shape its future.

Digbeth is being re-imagined and revitalised as a pre-eminent independent and industrious creative and cultural quarter. SEW's framework and long-term vision conserves the rich heritage of the past, while enhancing public realm and creating dynamic new buildings that will support Birmingham’s eclectic communities of the future, where the anticipated arrival of HS2 will place the City at a gateway to both the UK and European high speed rail network.

The webinar, being held on 24th September from 4.30-6pm, will see panellists including David West discuss place-making, health and well-being, heritage and inclusive growth, and more.

In the lead up to the event, watch out for a series of blogs from the built environmental professionals actively involved in the regeneration of Digbeth, including some of our SEW team.

Digbeth: The future is creative is kindly sponsored by Birmingham based reality capture company ScanTech Digital.
