Sheffield Creative Guild is proud to run the Sheffield chapter of What Next?

What Next? is a national movement bringing together arts and cultural organisations from across the UK, to articulate, champion and strengthen the role of culture in our society. The Sheffield chapter is an opportunity to add your voice to the local and national conversation and debate.

We will be using our second meeting of the year to ask – how are we all doing? As artists and people working in the creative industries, how have we experienced the past year and where are we now? To inform these discussions, we’ll be hearing from:

Rebecca Maddox, Sheffield City Council’s Head of Business Development (Culture), and other Culture Consortium members about what they’ve been working on recently and what Sheffield’s creative scene is looking like as we reopen venues and enjoy culture in-person once again.

And Guild members artist Joanna Whittle and musician Sarah Sharp about their experiences of the last year.

The running order for the event will be:
17:30 – Intro from the Guild team
17:35 – Culture Consortium update from Rebecca Maddox
17:40 – Update from artist Joanna Whittle
17:50 – Update from musician Sarah Sharp
18:00 – Group discussions
18:30 – Break
18:35 – Feedback and setting of discussion/ action points for upcoming meetings

This event will be taking place online, you will be sent a zoom link on the day of the event.
