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

Young people performing stories of migration between Sheffield and Brooklyn.

At the start of this year a group of young people from Sheffield worked with Chol Theatre to connect with a group of young people from Brooklyn, New York. Through live discussions, recorded interviews and a live streamed performance the young people began to create a play based on their families' personal stories of migration. At this event the young people from Sheffield college, their tutor and a member of the Chol team will share their experience so far. They will screen a documentary of the process made by local filmmaker Sean Lovell, including footage of the young people's first live performance to Brooklyn. The young people will finish the event with a Q&A session.

Chol co-creates stories in everyday community and educational spaces with children and young people from early years to early career.

Register in advance – this event on 18 June will include a Q&A, which is only available to those attending via Zoom.

Free – donations welcome.
