U Island CIC and arts organisation Juneau Projects have been working with families from Russian speaking countries as well as Latvia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and the UK to create imaginative sculptural birdhouses telling their stories of migration to Birmingham and the Black Country and sense of home.
The touring exhibition features five amazing exhibits that all have a unique story to discover, enjoy, share, and celebrate with others.
