ARTS AND COMMUNITY
Over the last 3 years we have dedicated ourselves to the artistic programme at the Legacy Centre of Excellence. We are committed to arts and community and thus have immersed ourselves in the creative culture of Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Exhibitions is the first showcase of young visual artists at the Legacy Centre of Excellence. This is a celebration of some the up and coming talent in Birmingham and the work in this exhibition was chosen because each of the artists produce work as part of their repertoire with each one created in a different painting styles
As we have grown and established ourselves within the arts and the community, we have had the honour of hosting a variety world class local and international artist. These include the likes of musicians Johnny Osbourne and WSTRN; comedians Gina Yashere and Babatunde Aleshe; and photographer Vanley Burke to name a few.
Some of our major arts and community events have included the Black British Book Festival, Zenith Festival (a yearly immersive arts exhibition) and Fashion Invasion. Currently our Legacy Live Lounge events are gaining popularity. This is an event where we showcase local musicians, and where like-minded individuals can come together and enjoy live music whilst supporting their local favourites.
We are also 1 of 9 organisations to receive funding from the Birmingham City Council Portfolio, for our arts and cultural programme. This has enabled us to expand on our artistic programme and incorporate more ideas from the community about what the art programme should look like. link to 2023 artistic programme
