The Story So Far…
We will publish regular updates here soon, with contributions from artists, participants and people involved in the project. In the meantime you can read the latest news from Moseley Road Baths CIO.

Welcome to the Gala Pool Art Project blog. This post represents a real milestone, as it’s been a year since we started planning this project in September 2018. Why this project and why now? The Gala Pool was closed to swimmers in 2003, but it was still accessible to...
Moseley Road Baths CIO are working with National Trust to deliver a new contemporary art commission that will celebrate the re-opening of the dramatic and beautiful Gala Pool, which has been closed since 2003.
This incredible space will re-open in early 2020 (although not for swimming) after undergoing a major roof repair funded by Historic England with matched funding from Birmingham City Council.
Our ambition is to create a visually stunning artwork that is rooted in the local community; reflecting the essence of the baths as a past, present and future community space.
Part of Trust New Art, the National Trust’s programme of contemporary arts.
Join in with free art workshops for the whole family, where you can help make the Moseley Road Baths Animation.
The first workshops take place at Moseley Road Baths

Trust New Art
Since 2009, Trust New Art has been connecting people to National Trust places through contemporary arts. So far we’ve worked with over 200 artists to create new work inspired by our places.
About the Artists
Juneau Projects are Philip Duckworth and Ben Sadler, an artist duo based in Birmingham. Formed in 2001, they have a proven track record of delivering small, medium and large scale public art projects and commissions both nationally and internationally. Their practice has participation at its core. They have experience of working in Balsall Heath. Their recent work incorporates an interest in heritage and how this can be shared in new ways with a contemporary audience.
We are looking for enthusiastic people interested in volunteering in the arts; to help invigilate, set up at events and engage with the public.
