Last night I spoke at a Culture Club showcase at the brilliant Site Gallery, hosted by The North marketing agency and supported by Sheffield City Council. The theme was impact, they wanted to show how Sheffield’s creative community is having an impact around the world.
I’m really aware of all the creative digital work being done in Sheffield but there’s lots of other kinds of brilliant work being done here that I had no idea about. Highlights of last night for me were The Hantu Collective, specifically their Project Bright and Fauna Graphic who does some of the most stunning murals featuring birds.
I have to say I was nervous as this is a first for me but I really enjoyed it. Me and Tim are so passionate about what we’re doing that sometimes it feels like it’s all we talk about. I worry that maybe we talk too much about it. Last night made me realise that while maybe that is true in some circles there are still extremely large groups of people that don’t really know about or understand what it is we’re doing.
Thanks so much to Ben, Mavis, Jonny, Stella, Amy and the Site Gallery staff for aiding and abetting my evangelising of Team Cooper’s work!
For those that are interested this is my presentation.
