The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Ever felt like dancing in the street? Maybe you just want to sit silently in the middle of the pavement or lie down with your legs in the air in the middle of Fargate?

Responding to Chloe Brown's research and film A Soft Rebellion in Paradise, filmmaker and photographer Laura Page invites you enact small acts of quiet rebellion and record these through photography and video.

The Acts of Rebellion workshops will take place at Millennium Gallery and Graves Gallery, and will culminate in a public screening and discussion at DINA. See details below.
