In the spirit of the flâneur, Sheffield Drifter aims to bring together “strollers, saunterers, wanderers and meanderers who love to feel the urban landscape beneath their feet.”
Mick Nott will lead drifters on a route that takes a critical view of how urban walking for transport or leisure has been affected by modernism and its subsequent development (or corruption?).
For Sheffield Modern, the drift will follow a route critically admiring and discussing why modernism makes walking so difficult. Story-sharing and conversation is encouraged.
More information will be posted on the Sheffield Drifter website soon.
Meet at the entrance to Victoria Hall, Norfolk Street, S1 2JB in good time for a prompt start at 3:30pm.
The drift will end no later than 5pm at Park Hill, where S1 Artspace will be open late with its Construction House exhibition (details coming soon).
