BOM is a centre for art, technology and science dedicated to creative innovation with purpose. Located in central Birmingham, our gallery is free to enter and presents cutting edge digital artworks and exhibitions that spark debate about technology and scientific progress. BOM is dedicated to positive social impact in all that we do. Our exhibitions and events explore topical issues in digital culture and science which impact on human lives. Our education work engages excluded children, young people and adults in creative technology programmes, with a particular interest in neurodiversity and technology. BOM is born from hacker culture. But unlike other hackspaces that are filled with tools and operate on a membership model, our building is publicly accessible with free exhibitions and events.
BOM and ICF collaborated to present a study day curated by Candice Nembhard featuring contributions from Harun Morrison and Taiwo Ogunyinka as part of the public programme for UP:RISE, a new groundbreaking nationwide Augmented Reality public artwork by artist Baff Akoto.
