Save The DRUM arts centre in Birmingham

This petition had 3,307 supporters

The DRUM is an arts organisation located in Newtown in Birmingham. It supports activities for some of the most challenged individuals and families in the city.  When it was closed in the summer of 2015 ARK Foundation was one of the local not-for-profit community organisations that challenged the local government to save the building and ensure it remained a facility supporting arts for all.

We have a small window of about 6 weeks to let the local government know how much this organisation means to us, our children and the future of our entire community again.

ARK Foundation has come together with more than a dozen art organisations, alongside a number of independent local artists, creative’s and key faith leaders to develop a solution, and we hope you will join us too.

The Drum provides an excellent opportunity for developing community cohesion through art and music to celebrate the differences within the immediate community. This therapeutic exchange offers many benefits including challenging stereotypes, bringing together families and sharing ideas. Not only does art entertain and bring about moments of enjoyment, but it also informs the mind and develops a deeper understanding of self.

Art in all of its forms is fundamental to the good mental health and development of a society. Please sign our petition to save The DRUM in Newtown, Aston Birmingham.
