For The Love Of is a photography and writing project inspired by place.
It builds on a project called Commonplace Beauty, which ran last summer. This year, For The Love Of will dig deeper into the places you love through a series of free photography and writing workshops, taking place both in person and online.
Peel back the layers of memory to explore the power of place with the writer Nik Perring. Or join Nik to see how seemingly ordinary places in Sheffield city centre can be a rich source of inspiration, revealing the magic in the small details we might normally miss.
Join writer Helen Angell online to explore how you can use significant locations to create depth and emotional connection in poetry. Helen will also lead a tour of often neglected areas of Sheffield, looking for the beauty in the unexpected to inspire heartfelt urban writing.
Photographer Richard Davis, meanwhile, will share his expertise in photographing places over the last forty years in an online workshop. He'll explain his own editorial choices and offer feedback on your photographs.
