The Brownhills Miner was part of the ‘Gateways’ project, a Walsall-wide initiative to improve the visual impact for people entering and travelling through the Borough.
Brownhills was awarded SRB (Single Regeneration Budget) funding in the round awarded to Walsall Borough.
After a series of meetings with the SRB committee and much background work, the project began in 2004. The Miner was finally installed on 17th May 2006.
The Team’s job during the two-year process was to make sure the public art project was a success and was delivered on time and on budget. Our focus on local people’s needs, hopes and aspirations was fundamental to how we approached the task.
