Friction Arts and Sustained Theatre West Midlands has contracted ArtReach ( with partner Charcoalblue) to undertake an intensive Feasibility Study

The study aims to identify  best options for collaborative development of The Edge space in Digbeth.

The aim is to create Space2develop, a hub for creativity supporting Sustained Theatre and the work of The Sector, as well as providing upgraded facilities enhancing the innovative work undertaken by Friction Arts.


The Study will be undertaken between August and December 2012 leading to a planned redevelopment phase in 2013. The project will provide a cutting edge, high quality new facility to support culturally diverse theatre makers and artists.
