Re-Distributed Manufacture at Warwick Bar

(2013-2016) with Birmingham City University + Royal College of Art

From 2013, a programme was initiated by Sue/MAAP to facilitate cluster development for its manufacture, design and creative industry tenants at Warwick Bar, including Clifton Steel as anchor tenant and the wider ‘maker’ sector in Digbeth to built on the adoption of new technologies, systems and processes. 

In partnership with academic and research partners, this programme seeks to facilitate emergent collaboration and strengthen STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) trading relationships. Innovation workshops, including Makey Makey creative technology sessions, were run in conjunction with BCU, and a Warwick Bar delegates visit to Milan Design EXPO with the Design Council, supported in 2015.
