Soul City Arts has a passion for using the arts to bring together people divided by culture, faith and ethnicity. Not afraid to address ‘the elephant in the room’, we use the arts as a tool to facilitate open dialogue, counteracting the divides facing modern society. Our work is characterised by deep visual spectacle and an immersive environment that engages all the senses.
The organization is led by artist and curator Mohammed Ali MBE and a team of creatives. Soul City Arts is based at the historic Moseley School of Art. We have delivered programmes across the UK and around the globe, but remain committed to delivering locally from our base in Balsall Heath, Birmingham.
Soul City Arts prides itself on delivering authentic and meaningful programmes that resonate with local communities. We are an organisation that seeks to understand the people through dialogue and collaboration. What arts organization or NGO worth its salt does not claim to ‘deliver change’ these days? We feel, though, that through our rootedness in community, our working methods and our track record of successful projects we deliver demonstrable change – when and where it counts.
