No.11 Arts: Blossoms Picnics

With thanks to...

The National Trust Logo (an oak twig with leaves and acorns above the organisation name)
Arts Council England logo: reads "supported using public funding by Arts Council England" with "Arts Council England" written around a circl on the left.

Across 2022 and 2023, Number 11 Arts partnered with the National Trust to restore Birmingham's historical "ring of blossom," through planting trees along the loop of the Number 11 bus route. As well as giving out trees to residents in all ten constituencies in 2022, we hosted ten Blossoms Picnics across the forums in 2023. The picnics saw storytelling, live music, arts and crafts, all outdoors to celebrate the blossom and the arrival of Spring. 

"This was a wonderful opportunity for me to tell nature-based to tell stories in the community." Artist
