Hockley Flyover Project

The Hockley Flyover  is an overpass which is part of the A41 in Birmingham that crosses over the top of a unique and fascinating public space called Hockley Circus built during the 1960s. 

 

We are running a participatory photography project with local people to document this space and to share stories from the flyover.

 

COVID-19 Update

Due to the UK governments current announcement of measures to contain the spread of the Conronavirus (COVID-19) we are unable temporarily to deliver any of the planned community photography activity or invite people to participate in the project by visiting the area to photograph the spaces.

 

All planned photowalks  and workshops are cancelled. For more information on this advice please visit  https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

 

We will keep the situation under review and expect to post an update in mid April 2020 when the Government is due to give is next announcement.

 

Stay home and stay safe.  Lets connect online.

 

Get Involved: Call for photographs

The aim of the Hockley Flyover project was to document the spaces in and around the Hockley Flyover (A41) overpass which we had hoped to do collective working with groups and individuals out there enjoying the space.

 

Thinking creatively its still possible to try and use an online approach of digital story telling to try and put together in one place a view of the Hockley Flyover.

 

The Hockley Flyover was built in the late 1960s so do you have any photographs that will help pull together its story over the decades right up to  the early 2020?

 

So this is a do call for photographs and stories if you would like to take part submit photographs and any text to ghoststreets@outlook.com or get in touch to share via google or Dropbox.

 

All contributions will be credited and only used on the project Tumblr photo blog click the link below or our Instagram account to check those out.
