If you are in and around Sheffield this Sunday, you may like to pop in to the Millenium Galleries and support the picnic event that is being organised to show our displeasure at having all our funding cut by the Arts council.
If you go - try and find me and say "Hello" - I shall wear a heart shaped brooch.
SHEFFTOPIA is the cultural capitol of the Independent state of Sheffield.
Despite being the 4th largest city in England, Sheffield constantly gets overlooked and has almost become an invisible city in the eyes of the government and funding boards. Because of this Sheffield has grown to become fiercely independent and proud. one of the areas that has thrived is the cultural element of the city, we promote and curate our own festivals produce brilliant bands, have talented entrepreneurs who promote cultural events and set up fantastic independent shops and we have a wealth of talented creative writers, artists musicians, film makers and actors. We may be starved of funding but we are not starved of culture. Please help by supporting this peaceful event x
