SITES OF SOCIAL SPECIAL INTEREST NO.2

Sites of Social Special Interest No.2 - Digbeth Coach Station, Birmingham (UK)

BACKGROUND TO PROJECT


The idea of this project was to adapt (some would call is ‘appropriate’) the term ‘Sites of Significant Scientific Interest’ into a personal exploration of ‘social significance’. I therefore began a series of accounts in the city of Birmingham (UK) in which is ‘investigated’ Sites of Social Special Interest or SSSI. Herein are some documentation of ‘events’, gatherings and exploration under the SSSI banner. Enjoy.
