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

Altered Places was a month-long residency at Sidney + Matilda with Site Gallery, showcasing the work of artists with physical and learning disabilities.

Throughout their residency, artists created a body of work exploring their chosen themes of movement, environment and light by responding to creative briefs set by Sheffield artists Christopher Jarratt, Joanna Whittle, Roanna Wells and Lea Torp Nielson.

Visitors were invited to meet the artists as they created work during open sessions. The artists celebrated their residency with an opportunity to see all their newly created works at a closing party held in October 2019.

All artists involved in Altered Places are represented and supported by ArtWorks. ArtWorks is a not for profit organisation which provides creative opportunities, placements and help with artist development for adults with physical and learning disabilities – get to know them in our Meet the Locals interview. And please consider supporting their work on Patreon.
