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

Join The Art House community online, for the Big Art Lock In.

#TheBigArtLockIn was set up by The Art House. After having to shut their doors to the public, the Sheffield creative hub wanted to create a way for its visitors to have access to a safe space to express their creativity and share encouragement until they can open their doors to everyone again.

How do I take part?
Be creative! It’s that simple. Express yourself through art, whether that be sculpting, drawing, sketching, painting, writing, weaving, sewing, knitting or anything in between, then hashtag #TheBigArtLockIn and share via Instagram, Twitter or the Facebook group.

What is the aim?
The aim of #TheBigArtLockIn is to encourage individuals who are socially isolated for whatever reason to get creative. The people behind The Art House set it up because they believe that participation in the arts and creative opportunities brings improved health outcomes and an increased sense of wellbeing.

Keep creating, keep tagging, keep positive!
