Digbeth Arts Market Art & Design Exhibition LAUNCH PARTY
BIRMINGHAM’S INDEPENDENT ART SCENE TAKEOVER DIGBETH ON NOVEMBER 18 IN A UNIQUE AND ENGAGING EXHIBITION
DIGBETH ARTS MARKET are excited to be launching their pioneering Art & Design Exhibition November 18. DAM will launch its first exhibition at the iconic Zellig and partnering independent cafe, Cranked Café.
They will be showcasing up and coming, award-winning artistic talent in a non-commercial environment with the opportunity for art to be purchased and commissioned upon request.
The Digbeth Art & Design Exhibition will be open to the public from November 18 and finish on December 8.
The idea for the exhibition was the brainchild of Kay Fisher, Founder of
Digbeth Arts Market who stated, “Many artists and designers work in
isolation and have little funds to promote their work. That’s where
DAM comes in. Now in Birmingham artists are being charged weekly rent
and high commission rates to sell their work in pop-up shops, is this
right? I ask myself, no, no it’s not so I started to do something

Digbeth Arts Market has grown organically since its establishment in
2016, and has grown into a loyal community of over 500 artists,
designers and makers including award-winning creative designer Amrit
Singh, Tom Wilson and Yujiro Suzuki.
Digbeth Arts Market is not just a market, it#s an opportunity for the public to engage with artists and designers, allowing them to work together in creating bespoke commission on pieces and supporting Birmingham’s independant art scene.
There is an increasing demand for unique, unconventional and innovative
experiences and offerings in Birmingham as evident in the rise of its
street food culture however, not enough is being done by the government
or private institutions to accommodate this. DAM’s philosophy is about
creating these experiences to support this important community of
artists and designers by giving them the opportunity to showcase their
talents without the commercial pressures associated with the private
sector. In an effort to support her community, Kay Fisher has not
charged any artists or designers to take part in the exhibition and is
providing them with a platform to self-promote their work to a wider
audience, while covering the costs to promote and organise the
