The 20th anniversary exhibition of A Fete Worse Than Death hosted by Red Gallery, is allowing artists the chance to reclaim the area for a day whilst giving the public a rare opportunity to see and buy early artworks made by the YBAs before they were famous.
This week's On the Streets is full of art that carries the summer spirit. Leading off the review is Pixel Pancho with his newest wall, painted as part of the Italian Memorie Urbane Street Art Festival in Gaeta.
I spoke to Petra Giloy-Hirtz, the curator of 'The Lost Album' at The Royal Academy about her work on this exhibition and her work.
Children, like adults, have the right to see books that reflect the world around them, and the broader world, too. That means, yes, featuring different races, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, religions, abilities, classes, ages, and so on, and also exploring political, moral, physical, and emotional issues
Divided into six parts, How To Train Your Dragon 2 gives us a tantalising glimpse into the world of a major Hollywood animation. There are stunning pictures of the different featured landscapes - from frozen wastelands, arctic mountains to lush forests and underwater worlds.
With renovation and entrepreneurial enthusiasm happening across the city and spring boarding, for me, from the re-opening of the Bullring Centre back in 2003 - the year I moved to this great city - the best is still to come. The smell of success is starting to fill the noses of the citizens of Birmingham and they are beginning to realize the potential of this place. Watch out world, here come the Brummies!
I guess it comes down to how you like your Richard III. I prefer mine to be brooding with conspiracy and charisma, for me to be sickened and amused by him in equal measure.
It's understood that he started as an actor, learning his craft as an unknown. What he did next was extremely canny, and something somewhat outside the realms of possibility for writers, producers, or actors in this modern world.
We shouldn't fall into the trap of talking numbers when it comes to education - whether in the arts, humanities or STEM subjects... Education is too important. It is more than dollar signs. It needn't be a scarce resource to offer something valuable.
Removing the collective worship requirement is not a call to jettison all trace of religion from schools... Legally imposing a daily act of worship, in which pupils by law are required to "take part", goes beyond the legitimate function of the state and violates the human right of freedom of belief for children and young people.
They call it "cross-modal perception". It comes from the magical and wonderful place in our brain where our different senses cross over a bit - where the signals get blurred. For a while it was called synesthesia. Now, as with a lot of things, what was once considered fringe behavior for the more special amongst us is now seen as something all of us are wired into - to a greater or lesser extent.
In the dexterous hands of acclaimed playwright Patricia Cumper MBE, Chigger Foot Boys accomplished what a good theatrical production should by being bold, entertaining and enlightening.
JK Rowling was 'proud...that when I "unmasked" myself to my editor David Shelley...one of the first things he said was "I never would have thought a woman wrote that."'... Nichi Hodgson... went so far as to question whether Rowling had 'betrayed women'.
I asked some well known friends of mine if they would read it and give me their thoughts. Ricky Gervais said it it was; "funny from beginning to end" David Baddiel said it was; "Very funny" and Jimmy Carr said; "It's the perfect romantic comedy, I loved it". It has been suggested I use a female pseudonym to sell the book, or have a sex change - but I'm not going through that again.
Experience the thrill of zip-lining through gorgeous, untouched rainforest terrain on the hidden away Wingfield Estate. Lush vegetation, beautiful flowers, mango trees and mischievous moneys await in this lively, tropical paradise.
There I am, sitting on the train, surrounded by bored, lonely and judgemental strangers, reading the words that grace those infamous pages... 'Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins.'
