Digital Cities Birmingham returns with a new series of inspiring events across the city, many of them free, including practical, hands-on workshops, masterclasses and conferences.

BBC Digital Cities will be returning to Birmingham this year for a week-long series of events for the creative industries. Starting on Monday 24 September 2018, there will be a full schedule stripped across the week, offering insights and free digital skills training.

Partners include: BBC Writers Room, the BBC Academy and BBC School Report, a digital arts and creative Hello Culture: Remix conference at Fazeley Studios, innovation and digital technology workshops at the newly opened STEAMhouse in Digbeth, and a day of events from trail-blazing digital channel BBC Three.

STEAMhouse will be hosting the headline event during BBC Birmingham Digital Week, 26th Sept, 9am-8pm.

You can join the STEAMhouse team for an epic day of creative, collaborative and high-energy designing and making. Alexa Torlo, Engagement Manager at STEAMhouse added, “We are delighted to team up with BBC to run an event at STEAMhouse, working together to tap into the city’s creative pool of entrepreneurs, where we’ll be designing, testing and prototyping new ideas in the Lab at STEAMhouse. It’s an opportunity to bring people together and explore new ways of working”.

James Hannam, Director and Owner or MakerLabs will be guiding the session, “Anyone can make, that is my whole ethos. In this session we will have a look at how you can quickly make a device that can connects to the internet and can be customised to work with most apps and platforms. People interested in the ‘connected digital world’ as well as any wannabe makers can enjoy these sessions. You’ll need to bring a smart phone (iOS or Android) and having your own laptop would be great! You’ll get to take away free software and links to guides and tutorials to make this little project even more awesome!”

Bringing together regional creative experts, makers and influencers in the digital space, you will be able to network with highly creative and like minded people, and…

*you will need to have a mobile phone or tablet with Byte App installed, you can download the app here.
