Advertising’s Unavoidable Impact: Restricting greenwash and the negative impact of outdoor advertising in Birmingham

Start: Thursday, October 12, 2023 7:00 PM

End: Thursday, October 12, 2023 8:30 PM

This October join us in Birmingham to challenge greenwash.

Adfree Cities are coming to Birmingham on 12th of October 2023. We’re hosting an event at Kings Heath Community Centre, on how councils can control high carbon advertising and promote positive, creative alternatives for more vibrant public spaces.

We’re asking…

  • How does advertising pollute our streets and our planet?
  • How can our councils control high-carbon advertising?
  • What would a fossil free Birmingham look like?

Join us on Thursday 12th October 2023 at Kings Heath Community Centre, 8 Heathfield Road, Kings Heath, B14 7DB, 7:00pm - 8:30pm for this free event.

We will be discussing the work of Adfree Cities and building a network of Adblock groups across the nation to combat the impacts of high carbon advertising. We will also be joined by Darren Cullen (Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives), the artist behind the Hell Bus who dissects greenwashing techniques through satire.

Attendance is free! Please register your place.

Also, please share with friends and on social media!

This event forms part of a tour taking the ‘Hell Bus’, a mobile exhibition with artwork dissecting greenwashing tactics, to university towns and cities across the UK, in collaboration with Switch It Green. Darren Cullen’s Hell Bus will be joining us as a public climate art exhibition to raise awareness around high carbon advertising and demonstrate positive, democratic, and creative use of city space. Come and see the Hell Bus at Kings Heath Village Square on 12th-13th October and 2nd Saturday Festival in Balsall Heath on the 14th of October 2023.

Kings Heath Community Centre is fully accessible. If a BSL interpreter is needed please contact
