    Arts and Cultural Ambassadors

    Creativity is about finding new ways of solving problems and approaching situations. It’s not restricted to artists, musicians or writers; it is a useful skill for everyone. 

    We know that it can be hard to express your creativity. We know that you may not feel creative sometimes but want to develop your skills and future opportunities. We know that getting creative during a pandemic is pretty tricky. 


    That’s why we’ve designed our Arts and Culture Ambassadors programme. It’s for young people just like you.

    SPARKS 

    Now to Spring 2021

    We are a city of makers; we have invented, discovered and pioneered. We start new trends and change perspectives. Sparks seeks to embed active ageing into the mindset of Sheffield so when it comes to planning events, leisure activities and programming, everyone’s needs, abilities and dreams are considered. We aim to engage people over 50 in curating and producing a local and city-wide programme of events from club nights to touring theatre productions; to create a central voice that informs our large city festivals and events how to celebrate and engage our older population.
