Stories of Activism: City Activist Walk

Stories of Activism, a city-wide project run by the Department of History which works with activists to collect and record their stories, is holding another City Activist Walk on 2 July at 5.30pm from the Fargate entrance of Orchard Square and invites you to come along.

The project has been working with poet River Wolton to devise and perform the walk, in and around Sheffield city centre using the collected stories to traces the city’s activist past and present through its buildings, landmarks and streets. The first walk, held as part of the recent In The City festival was a sell-out and Sheffield filmmaker Gemma Thorpe was commissioned to record it on film. The film can be seen here http://vimeo.com/97475159
