iSE | Capturing Social Enterprise Resilience Exhibition 2022

Social Enterprise Drive 2022 is a diverse programme of events raising awareness of Birmingham’s vibrant social enterprise sector taking place 6-10 June 

We’re kick-starting events with ‘capturing social enterprise resilience’ – a digital photography call out that will create an exhibition of social impact in public spaces.


What does social enterprise resilience mean to you?

Our cities, our communities, are full of social enterprises working for change – often quietly, often in the background. This is an opportunity to tell your story and be seen as part of a bold photography exhibition during Social Enterprise Drive 2022. 

Whether it’s the resilience of a community, an individual or a representation of finding strength and overcoming adversity during a challenging few years, we invite you to celebrate social enterprise in Birmingham.

All entries will be promoted on social media channels using the hashtag #CapturingSocEnt2022 and shortlisted entries will create a public exhibition during Social Enterprise Drive week.

The exhibition will be in the women’s slipper baths at Moseley Road Baths, Balsall Heath,  and The Good Intent, Great Western Arcade on Friday 10th June – with a further location in the pipelines.

With thanks to Gowling WLG (UK) LLP for making this exhibition possible.

Closing date for entries is May 13th 2022. Shortlisted entries will be announced by the 16th May 2022 and all shortlisted entries will be exhibited at our social enterprise photography exhibition held during Social Enterprise Drive in a central Birmingham location(s).
