Black Country Echoes

Black Country Echoes Festival
Black Country Echoes is an Arts Council funded project.

It aims to celebrate the industrial heritage of the Black Country across the boroughs of Wolverhampton, Walsall, Sandwell and Dudley.

Creative community engagement is central to the project and we are looking to engage diverse community groups and make links with organisations and venues across the region. The project will culminate in a festival throughout the autumn in 2014, which will showcase the working lives of local people and help promote the Black Country as a great place to visit.

If you or your family would like to share memories of working in the region you can help record history and take part in this project. For more information or to register your interest in taking part, please get in touch:
