Selected artists

We’re excited to announce the selected artists for this year’s In:Site 2017 festival!

This year, artists will be spinning wool, chasing metal, embroidering, sculpting and much more. We’re pleased to feature graduates from Universities across the UK who are working with a variety of different making processes. The majority of makers will have participatory activities for anyone to join in alongside creating their own ambitious pieces to be installed in Birmingham Cathedral Square.
