Film Birmingham:

We are thrilled to announce the launch of this exciting new initiative to support and grow the local film industry! Film Birmingham is one-stop shop for creators of film and media projects, showcasing the impressive diversity of locations and talent that our region has to offer.


We don’t mean to brag, but it’s a fact that Birmingham365 is the most comprehensive calendar of public events our city has to offer. Arts & culture of every variety, family-friendly fun, happy hour meet-ups, sporting and outdoor events, food-and-beverage activities? We’ve got it all. Whatever you’re interested in, we are too.

SpaceFinder Birmingham:

The process of finding the right space for creative work can be frustrating and inefficient. Meanwhile, venues and property owners have limited resources to spend finding new renters. We may just have the solution! SpaceFinder Birmingham is a free online marketplace for arts, design and creative-entrepreneur rental space.

Office Hours:

Create Birmingham’s Office Hours are offered the first and third Thursday of the month and give you an opportunity for meetings and consultations with our staff. Make an appointment with a staff member to ask questions and receive actionable tips and practical and professional advice in person.
