Still: Stories from the Jewellery Quarter explores the past and
the present experiences of those who have spent their time
working in this important and historic area of Birmingham.

Bringing together photographic portraits and oral histories
from the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, this project provides a unique insight into Birmingham’s cultural and industrial heritage. The work is inspired by people who have spent their lives working
in an area within the JQ covering just six streets - Frederick Street,
Warstone Lane, Legge Lane, Albion Street, Vittoria Street and
Regent Place. Focusing on a region which is experiencing intense
change, the work presents the opportunity to consider and reflect
on the lives and memories of some of those who have helped give
the iconic area its unique character.

Still: Stories of the Jewellery Quarter is presented by the Jewellery
Quarter Townscape Heritage Project, a three-year scheme
which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It aims to re
generate an area within the Jewellery Quarter’s industrial middle’
through the repair and restoration of historic buildings and the
delivery of events and activities.
