The Exchange

A place for communities to shape ideas and solutions together, to make our cities and regions better places to live, work and learn.

Located in Centenary Square in Birmingham City Centre, The Exchange uses our research, teaching and local, national and international networks to create a place of curiosity, celebration, collaboration and change.
