Legacy West Midlands

Legacy WM is a registered charity that has its roots in celebrating the heritage of post-war migrant communities in Birmingham. Our work highlights their relationship to the industrial, architectural, and cultural heritage of the city. Early projects included tracing migrant journeys through food, and developing a local heritage trail.

In the past five years we have developed and extended our work to involve the second and third generations, to recognise and support their contribution to our city.

After the success of our early projects - Cultural Food Journeys and the Lozells & Handsworth Heritage Trail - we have adopted five new priorities:

These priorities enable Legacy WM to develop and deliver culturally diverse, creative, and interactive projects for many different audiences, in response to a range of needs.
