What if anyone could decide who has freedom to the city? What if everyone, not just the chosen few, could be recognised with the Key to the City of Birmingham? 

What if anyone, not just the Mayor, could decide who is deserving of the Freedom of the City?

What if this key could open dozens of spaces around the city?

And what if all those spaces together created a portrait of Birmingham?

Key to the City is a project that turns all these “what ifs” into reality. During the summer of 2022 anyone will be able to award the Key to the City to whomever they want, for whatever reason they want. No background checks necessary, all previous sins will be overlooked.

The project forms part of Fierce’s very special 25th anniversary celebrations.

Join Fierce's team of brilliant volunteers to bring Key to the City to life.
