Saturday will feature an exhibition of work by young people in the Project Space, co-curated by the Society of Explorers, including work made with Christopher Jarratt, ChilyPep, ArtWorks and Selina Thompson, plus a free riso printing workshop with Dizzy Ink.
There'll also be the launch of Site Sessions Autumn Series. All weekend architects Wayward are hosting a Festival of Exchange in The Square (Pinball Park). They invite the local community to join in, show support and have a voice in developing a shared vision for Sheffield’s public realm.
