logo Burngreave Messenger Issue 32 - June 2003.


The Creative Burngreave Project will provide artists and potential artists with training and development to work on community Arts projects. These projects will build on the creative ideas of Burngreave people, ideas mentioned already include: environmental art to enhance the streets; film-making/photography to share people’s stories and histories linked with Galleries/Museums; enhancing the Multicultural Festival with additional performance; training in specific art-forms linked to work placements.

But nothing is decided yet! We will map what already exists so we can build on the area’s great strengths. The posts will lead the programme guided by the Arts and Culture Group. We are very keen to involve all interested local people, contact Sheffield Arts Education to be part of the group.

Two key jobs are now being advertised: Arts Development Officer and Arts Administration Officer. Adverts have been distributed in Burngreave, and will appear in the Star and The Guardian. Closing date for applications is 16th June. For an application form contact personnel on 293 0909. Contact Jenneffer Dennis or Jacqui McKoy-Lewens on 221 1867, for information about the project.

The project is New Deal funded with community endorsement and is managed by Sheffield Arts Education.
