M5 Mile


What happens when artists take over a forgotten space?
In June 2016 for one day, local artists transformed a neglected stretch of land under the raised section of the M5 motorway as it passes through Smethwick. Their brief, to simply respond to the site. A collaborative project, realised in partnership with MADE, Blue & White Creative and Creative Black Country.
