Introducing Birmingham365

Birmingham365 logoThe latest attempt to launch an all-inclusive online events calendar in the City of Birmingham has quietly launched as we start a new year.

There are a few people that already knew about Birmingham365.org, a partnership between the Cultural Alliance of Greater Birmingham, the Birmingham Business Alliance and the city’s convention and visitors bureau, including those in attendance at last month’s BBA annual meeting, but the site was officially unveiled earlier this week.

It serves as a replacement for the Cultural Alliance’s ActiveCulture.info calendar (the old site’s URL redirects to the new one), with that organization serving as the site’s administrator. The site joins 31 others in the Artsopolis Network, a network that grew out of the development of the Arts Council of Silicon Valley’s website in California that is “dedicated to promoting Arts, Culture, and Entertainment in their communities.”

What are your first impressions of the new site?

So what’s up with our calendar?

That’s been a popular question in recent weeks… it’s not because we aren’t wanting to put information up. It’s because we’re preparing to launch a new one. We wanted to make sure that we were offering the best services possible while living up to our tagline of being Birmingham’s hub. It’s our hope to launch our new system (and a couple other surprises) in two weeks. If you want to learn more and want to help us launch it, drop me a line.

In the meantime, we’d ask that you use our current calendar submission form or email/DM/call us using the many methods available on our contact page (though we’d suggest sending event submissions to timetable@bhamterminal.com).  We’ll do our best to post information about events on Timetable (which is also undergoing a redesign of its own of sorts – pardon the construction).
