  5. If you enjoy walking, discovering forgotten secrets and getting arty, come along and join us on our two Arts Walks! We're running two exciting cross-platform Arts Walks that aim to rediscover the lost and forgotten spaces around Sheffield. We'll be making our way down hidden pathways, discovering forgotten sites and searching for a buried history amongst post-apocalyptic landscapes. The first of these walks will take place between 10.30am-1.30pm on Saturday 26th October and will be exploring the area around Parkwood Springs. Over a four mile route, you will explore the mixture of well-known and secret paths surrounding Parkwood’s city-centre rubbish tip, visit the long-forgotten Wardsend Cemetery and trace the overgrown roads of a forgotten community, taking part in arts and writing activities as you go. The walk will depart from the Infirmary Road tram stop and will cover some steep and rough terrain, so is recommended only for confident walkers. https://www.facebook.com/events/304909346313702/?ref=5 The second will be on Saturday 2nd November and will be rediscovering the history of Cuthbert Bank and the site of Kelvin Flats. Departing from outside the Zest Centre/ Upperthorpe Library at 10.30am, the two mile walk visits the site of Kelvin Flats, sharing the history and memories of previous residents. It then continues to Cuthbert Bank, where the hulks of old pigeon lofts sit amongst the trees, before culminating in indoor arts activities and refreshments at Hillsborough Park. https://www.facebook.com/events/518083071613922/?ref=5 Both walks will feature opportunities to engage in arts activities. We recommend you wear sturdy shoes and bring appropriate clothing! Check out the Facebook events for more details.

  13. As a development of our Shakespeare Sonnets project we will be running two 4-hour workshops (open access, drop-in) in Ponderosa Park, facilitated by Cathy Shrank with Art in the Park’s professional writers and artists. This will explore sonnets which evoke strong visual images (e.g. ageing, landscapes). Using textiles, painting, digital cameras and recycled materials, participants will create artwork responding to these sonnets. Participants will also be encouraged to respond to these visual images, creating their own writing. The process will end in a circular walk in the Ponderosa led by a writer and artist, exploring the art, words and film from the previous workshops. Words will play through mp3 players and participants from the workshops will read their works along the route. Participants will be encouraged to further creation of words and art, using the walk as inspiration. The first two sessions (Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September, 12-4pm each day) will allow the public to work with an academic, an artist and a writer to explore sonnets with dramatic visual imagery and make new creative work in response, using words and images. The final session on Saturday 29th September 12-4pm will see work from the first two days exhibited around the park, alongside artwork, writing and sound produced in previous workshops with young people, older people in sheltered housing and long term NHS service users.
