Birth of Barques Arts

Leading organisations welcome design and digital agency’s exciting new division

Birmingham-based PR, design and digital agency Barques launched its new division, Barques Arts, at the Ikon gallery. Among those attending were representatives from Arts Council England, Birmingham Hippodrome, Millennium Point, DASH and the University of Birmingham. Barques Arts, led by Chris Brown, already has a strong portfolio of cultural clients which has been strengthened further with a series of new accounts, which include Southside BID, BOM Lab and Digital Birmingham’s Digital Academy.
