BrumYODO and Birmingham Hippodrome

BrumYODO and Birmingham Hippodrome are proud to have partnered this year, to bring the installation to the people of Birmingham.

Presented in the open air, In Memoriam is an evocative symbol of local, national and international solidarity. Created from 120 NHS blue and white bedsheets, the artwork forms a public space for people to safely contemplate and reflect.

As well as the installation artwork, there were a number of online events that took place as well including community flag making activities. Birmingham Hippodrome and BrumYODO commissioned Birmingham poet Jodi Ann Bickley to write a new poem to commemorate the installation. 

In Memoriam in Birmingham is presented by ‘A Matter of Life & Death Festival’ managed by BrumYODO, and Birmingham Hippodrome. The artwork n Birmingham is supported by Birmingham City Council, Aston Hall and funded by Arts Council England and Without Walls. Sponsored by A Natural Undertaking.
