From Digbeth watesland to darwin-inspired arts space

Just picked this up from the Behind Closer Doors project website:

Two artists from Birmingham are part of an unusual project which has transformed a Digbeth waste-ground into a darwin-inspired exhibition space.

In the wake of the revered scientist’s bicentenary, Helen Grundy and Anne Guest are set to launch Unnatural Selection on 30th July at the Rea garden in Floodgate Street. The project is supported by Arts Council funding and the artists’ collective Behind Closed Doors.

Unnatural Selection aims to replicate Darwin’s methods of using his garden as a laboratory to observe nature, collect samples and carry out experiments.

There is a related workshop on saturday 1st August from 12-3pm.
