Millennium Point will be a hive of creative talent this September as Punch Records marks the end of its creative residency programme, Gallery 37, with a free Showcase event.

On Saturday 10th September the main atrium at Millennium Point will be filled with live music, poetry and spoken word performances, dance, film and more as the participants of Gallery 37 showcase the work they have created during the 8-day residency.

The young creatives will join the likes of Apples & Snakes, Beatfreeks, and Sticky Toffee on the stage throughout the day as they perform in front of live audiences.

The day will also feature performances from Paul “Steady” Steadman from premier dance collective Flawless, R&B and soul singer-songwriter Terri Walker and urban artist RoxXxan.

For those who were unable to attend 2016’s new look Gallery 37, the Showcase will feature a range of masterclasses, workshops creative career advice and industry low down events to get involved in. A series of Open Studios will be held inside the venue with G37 artists, A3 Gallery, Juneau Projects, Grand Union, Make/Shift/Space, and Beatcamp with Screama, alongside guest producer Diztortion. Local street food provider, Taste & Liquor will also be on site through the day serving up an array of fresh food and sweet treats.

Produced by the UK’s leading music development agency, Punch Records, Gallery 37 is Birmingham’s long-established youth arts participation programme. This year it has provided free creative skills training to over fifty young people who have found themselves outside of education and employment.
