Who We Are: We are Sheffield’s community arts organisation specialising in visual arts.

​Our Vision is that every person in Sheffield has equitable access and opportunity to participate in visual arts experiences, which builds confidence, pride and reduces social isolation.

​Our Mission is to inspire and nurture an artistic community. Through local partnerships we provide free and excellent opportunities to participate in visual arts experiences to under served communities in Sheffield. We celebrate creativity and connections.


What We Do:

We work across the city with people of all ages and backgrounds where creativity is needed the most. All our work is free for those taking part; we work in partnership with every project connecting with the organisations rooted in communities who can support and represent the needs of local people. 

We specialise in visual arts projects and workshops; from weekly sessions for families in local libraries to intergenerational projects in care home settings. 

Our Programmes:

  • Children and Families: Fun, imaginative learning opportunities for children and families in local community spaces and in partnership with local services. 
  • In the Community: Reflective, creative and connecting projects for adults of all ages. We bring together our core partners and community groups, from across the city to explore a social issue that matters to them. This also includes intergenerational projects.
  • At Home: From creativity packs sent home after workshops to online "how to" videos we also provide opportunities to get creative outside of our workshop settings. 
  • In the city: Through our annual conference, our CEO's role in networking and lobbying and connecting people through public events we are fully involved in developing and contributing to the creative sector in Sheffield. 
  • Artists: We nurture and elevate artists at all stages of their career. From volunteer opportunities to our paid workshop assistant programme, we offer training, mentoring and networking to nurture our city's creative talent.
