The unique partnership between private sector organisation National Express and EC‐Arts won recognition for the project in 2009, by winning the ‘Jaguar Land Rover Arts and Business Award’ for specific community engagement, and contribution to regeneration and sustainable growth. The award was presented by Sir Patrick Stewart.
Every year the Birmingham Coach Station sees 1.6 million passengers pass through this gateway to the city. The DPAP permanent installations will support and enhance the area, providing it with a strong visual identity and creating a lasting first impression of the city as innovative and progressive. The project has been influenced by Birmingham’s Big City Plan and is a unique landmark for the future of the city’s regeneration and redevelopment.
The project was also nominated for the ‘Arts and Business Young People Award’ in recognition of a partnership that has harnessed the power of the arts to engage young people. For more information click here
