Community Celebrations

Saturday 16th JUne

Migration Matters is a festival in its third year, that explores and celebrates diversity in Sheffield.

We have worked closely with the festival to develop this new strand of work within two of Sheffield's communities.

We aim to bring people together; all ages and backgrounds to build relationships, develop knowledge and understanding of one another and celebrate their rich diversity.

Working within schools, existing community groups and in local libraries we will deliver 50 hours of free workshops in Parson Cross and Darnall.

Facilitators will introduce questions to the groups such as What Makes Me, Me? Where Am I From? What Is Beauty? Using creative techniques such as writing, photography, performance and visual arts as a means to engage and unpick these subjects we aim to highlight our similarities and celebrate our differences.

The work produced will be exhibited or performed at the local libraries; this whole community celebration will encourage new relationships through a diverse programme of food, music and dance represented and delivered by local residents.

There will also be an exchange of work with city centre programme with performances and artwork being shown at each venue.
