More Birmingham Instameet

By Emily, Marketing and Press Assistant and Kerry, Visitor Services Co-ordinator

On Saturday 6 June Ikon took part in an Instameet organised by Visit Birmingham and Hidden Spaces. Over 100 people attended the event which was led by members of Hidden Spaces – a Birmingham-based project run by Associated Architects which aims to share Birmingham’s diverse architectural history and the secrets behind the facades.

We visited some amazing spaces such as the Municipal Bank, The Council House, an abandoned WWII mortuary under Birmingham’s Council House and lots more. It was great to explore the hidden gems of Birmingham and to learn the history behind the spaces. Visit Ikon’s Instagram page @ikongallery to see all the images that we uploaded.

All images produced at the Instameet can be found on Instagram using the hashtag #BrumMeetJune6. For further information about upcoming Instameets in Birmingham go to the Visit Birmingham Instagram page @Visit_Birmingham.

A collection of  images produced throughout the event will be showcased at Ikon, 27 – 29 November, in a first-of-its-kind pop-up exhibition entitled More Birmingham Instagram Showcase.
