Soul City Arts (SCA) is an arts organisation committed to developing creative and innovative programmes of work that deliver against our vision of ‘connecting communities and transforming society through creativity’. We create high-quality events and programmes that bring people together to explore commonalities and shared narratives across all faiths and none. Our work is characterised by deep visual spectacle and an immersive environment that engages all the senses. By celebrating our shared humanity, we seek to reverse the isolation felt by some communities and thus build pride, civic engagement, and confidence.
The organisation is led by artist and curator Mohammed Ali MBE and a team of creatives. Governance is provided by an experienced Board of Trustees. 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 new base in Sparkbrook, Birmingham. Following our recent success in becoming an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, this is a perfect time to join the team as we continue to build our team, offer, and reach
