Together in the City is a project by Sheffield Theatres connecting 19 creative community projects and 26 project groups in and around Sheffield. The project has been happening over the last few months and concludes with a celebration on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 April in the Crucible.

It features a textile exhibition in the Crucible foyer including work by our own creative participants led by local textile artist Anne Smithies at Abbeyfield House.

Plus a publication reflecting the work done by local Burngreave youth group ‘Reach Up’ who, in collaboration with DINA Venue, are running a project together exploring the roles and opportunities available to young people in the music and theatre world.

All alongside performances, workshops and exhibitions by other projects on the main stage and foyer – creating a community takeover of the theatre across two days!

Sally Wilson, Project Manager at Sheffield Theatres said:

“What better way to celebrate the creativity and diversity of our local communities than with a fusion of art, performance and culture in the Crucible.

“There’s something for everyone over the two-day celebration, from family-friendly workshops on 5th April to empowering debate for older audiences on 6 April.

“We will come together to see the world through the eyes of others and enjoy the creative talents of Sheffield.”
