Good for Nothing is about doing good stuff, for nothing, for social innovators and change makers in Birmingham.

We have a brand new Good For Nothing chapter in Birmingham and we want you to get involved. We are collaborating with Boston Tea Party to run a Good For Nothing experiment in four of their cafes, including our local one in Corporation Street. Boston Tea Party are providing Good For Nothing the space to meet and we hope that these local hubs and our new format will be our launch pad to help more people engage with Good For Nothing in Birmingham.

Do you want some Good For Nothing love? Would you like to share what you do and what challenges you face at our Pitch Night on 28 September? Then get in touch using the form below. As a collective we will try to help you overcome barriers you are facing in your project using the talent of the Good For Nothing community in Birmingham. Over the course of two hours on 28 September, ten projects will be invited to come and share what they are doing in a fun and engaging way.

What is your project called? What do you do? Who is it for? What do you need help with?

The Birmingham Good For Nothing Community who have listened to your pitch will share connections, provide insight and support and shortlist three projects through to our next round. These three projects will be voted for online and in the cafe for the following four weeks and then get a 3-hour Good For Nothing Gig later int he ear.

Below you’ll see the format of our three month cycle, a guide to how to pitch, and form to submit your project. What’s the catch?

  • Your pitch needs to be under three minutes. No slides.
  • Your project needs to be Up and Running i.e your concept is proven with an owner/team
  • You have a disruptive approach that is tackling a social and/or environmental issue
  • Up for the party? You are willing to open up and let the Good for Nothing crew work freely on their brief from you.

Do you live in Birmingham and want to do Good in Your Hood by gifting your talent for nothing?

Want to be a part of the audience and listen to a high energy, fast and friendly showcase? Good For Nothing is a creative generosity network where folks gift their talents to help local social change projects in their city have more impact. Anyone can do Good For Nothing, please come along to our first gig to get involved and find out more.
