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

What do you see through your window?

Ignite Imaginations invites you to explore the experience of migration in the context of lockdown during a global pandemic. How can we be a connected and welcoming community when staying apart is the best way to help each other? Watch the digital installation and join in with your own creative response. Sharing a glimpse of what’s through your window can help to bring us together while we’re apart.

Ignite Imaginations connect communities through art and creativity. It works with a large pool of freelance artists to bring art to all areas of the city – read more in our Meet the Locals interview.

See the videos below for the installation by Sile Sibanda and Genevieve Carver, and an artist-led workshop by Liz Von Graevenitz – click here to download the workshop's template PDF.
