The website invites members of the public to share their ideas for the City of Culture bid.

Organisers want the people of Birmingham to have their say.

Chairman of the Birmingham Cultural Partnership Cllr Martin Mullaney said: “Birmingham has always been an exciting and innovative city and we're sure people across the city can play a significant role in shaping our bid to be the UK City of Culture in 2013.

“The most exciting element of this is that there's no way to predict what will come out of the consultation. People can log onto the website and take us off in all sorts of creative and wonderful directions.

“The important thing here is that this is a Birmingham-wide bid - it's not just about the council or the many high profile arts and cultural organisations in the city.

“We want people across the city to make their mark so individuals and organisations from the grassroots up can be part of the Birmingham story.

“If you have ideas, please log onto the website and share them. If you don't have an idea at the moment but are interested in the process, log onto the website for inspiration.”

    Well comment?
    At eighty this year and 7 years with stomach cancer.my only treatment being golf,that has helped me through the trauma of,being told you are untreatable,to now arguing with my surgeon,about having chemotherapy.
    Golf can be wonderful therapy.
    Better than anything the NHS can provide.
    Get this message across,golf can keep you active physically and mentally,it is far superior to any gym,
    So do not sell the courses,get people to use them.
