Join the Walsall Placemakers

It’s time that we all come together as a collective community and make decisions about our town and what it’s future could be.

Our Vision

Let’s build a better Walsall by unlocking the dreams & ambitions of each community across the borough. Together let’s expose the abundance in and from Walsall and revitalise the town’s spirit as a space of creativity & innovation – building power with people through making and experimentation.

Project Updates

We have just received the keys to our new home in the heart of Walsall.

 

Our dream is to transform this building – the old Hogs Head Pub which was housed in the beautiful Grade II listed Brookes Works, with Walsilians into a Multi-disciplinary Arts & Community Hub, Creative Studios &  Community Led Design Research Labs.

 

We are building connections with the local authority, voluntary sector, businesses and local residents to help inform a new ‘Manifesto’ for Walsall.

 

The manifesto will. capture the needs, values, dreams and ambitions of the communities living here, so that we might create a new collective vision for Walsall’s future.

 

We will use this manifesto to shape the way we work across the towns and ensure that our work is exactly what is needed and asked for.
