Spaghetti Jams is a collective of designers, creative thinkers and collaborative changemakers based in Birmingham and West Midlands.

Established in 2015, we come together to create spaces where people can explore design mindsets, processes and tools to build creativity and problem solving skills as well as work on various events, projects and ventures individually.

We do this because we believe that building creative confidence in people is key to enabling people to play a role in shaping the world around them.

A Brief History
Spaghetti Jams was founded in 2015 by Daniel Blyden and Chris Sadler whilst they were working on their Masters degrees in response to a recognised need for open and inclusive spaces for experimentation and play and collaboration in Birmingham city. The Global Jams had been convening in many cities around the world for several years, however, there was no participation in Birmingham. They soon got together to experiment with hosting the first Service Jam in the city which led on to a growing creative community enabling people to go on and do many many things.
