New Birmingham zedding

Gateway to the Jewellery Quarter

Gateway to the Jewellery Quarter

Great news: Rosie has done her first new zedding for a while, in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. I liked this because I always meant to explore the Jewellery Quarter more thoroughly myself when I worked there.

Top marks for the use of a Google Map too. We Manchester zedders will have to raise our technological game and copy that idea…

The mother of zedding’s handy tips

By Liam

As we mentioned at some point before, Rosie the inventor of Zedding has been getting students to do random urban wanders.

She prepared a nice set of questions which kind of sum up the stuff we look for when zedding:

  • How do people use public space in the city?
  • Who is present or absent?
  • How do the different urban spaces make you feel?
  • What messages are present? (e.g. graffiti/advertising/political debate)
  • Are there any signs of ‘sacred space’?
  • What was the most surprising thing you saw or heard?
  • Did anything make you laugh?
  • What was the strangest conversation you had or overheard?
