The folks from Project Pigeon, Alexandra Lockett and Ian England, are going to be coordinating a flyover the festival site on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Based in the Rea Gardens on Floodgate Street, Project Pigeon explores how art, sport, education and curating can co-exist and what sporting sub-cultures can tell us about wider society and its systems, values, policies and ideologies. Each pigeon will be wearing a different Philopersiteron Feipan whistle (or pigeon whistle) on their tail, which will create an amazing harmonic droning noise from across the pentatonic scale. Think Red Arrows, but better, and a whole lot noisier.
The Rea Garden, 1-8 Floodgate Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B5
Saturday 15.30 – 16.00, Sunday 13.30 – 14.00
