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

If you’d like to come along, tickets are free, but please register at https://storiesofactivismwalk.eventbrite.co.uk

Stories of Activism: City Activist Walk

Sheffield has a rich and vibrant history of activism. Over the past few years, the Stories of Activism in Sheffield, 1960-present project has been conducting interviews with activists from around the city. The city centre and its immediate surrounding areas are an important part of their stories. Join poet River Wolton and others as we trace the City’s activist past and present through its buildings, landmarks and streets. The stories we tell will bring to life again—and update—the famous ‘Radical History Walk’. All participants are invited to add their stories as we walk, and contribute to the project’s growing collection stored at Sheffield Archives.
