New Shoes Presents Strange Fruit  

An innovative micro-festival which explores the issues we don't like to talk about in today's society. Through thought provoking talks, performances, debates and interactive social experiments Strange Fruit aims to honestly examine taboo issues such as mental health, sexuality and racism. Inspired by the experiences of young people determined to make a change in their community.

Disclaimer: please be aware that sensitive topics may be discussed, after all, you can't sugarcoat a strange fruit. 

Set up by mac birmingham's Next Generation Scheme and Beatfreeks, New Shoes is creative work experience for young people from challenging circumstances. Working in partnership with The Princes Trust to create a supportive space for young people to discuss and creatively explore issues that effect them whilst learning new skills.
