Some Cities is a social project, a participatory photography project, that invites photographers of all abilities to share their images of Birmingham, with the world, via a dedicated online platform www.some-cities.org.uk.
The Some Cities project has been much acclaimed. Driven by an ambition to see Birmingham become one of the UK’s centres of photography, the initiative has seen the creation of an extensive interactive digital archive, via user-submitted content, that charts and chronicles life within the city.
Images can be submitted directly to the Some Cities website, or via Twitter (other social network platforms to follow) using the hashtags #somecities and #brumfotos.
Some Cities, through exhibitions, public talks, bursaries, workshops and sharing events; is working with partners across the creative, cultural, academic and voluntary sectors in order to help create opportunities for everyone to engage with photography and contribute to the archive of their city.
The project is managed by Birmingham-based photographers Andrew Jackson and Dan Burwood, and is supported by Arts Council England, University of Birmingham, GRAIN, mac Birmingham, Birmingham City Council, WAVE, Square magazine and AG Photographics.
