Year of Making, Sheffield 2016

I live just on the outskirts of Sheffield, a city with a proud history of making, famous the world over for it’s steel industry and Silversmithing.

This year, 2016, Sheffield celebrates a year of making with all types of industry from advance manufacturing to award winning theatre.

“Welcome to the Sheffield Year of Making 2016.

This is a unique opportunity to show that making is in the city’s DNA, ranging across advanced manufacturing to arts, music and theatre.

It’s not just about culture, it’s about how economic vibrancy comes in many forms.

Sheffield is a city that makes people; from theatre-makers, music-makers, health-makers, art-makers, education-makers to business-makers. Year of Making is our opportunity to showcase this by providing a crucible of creativity for residents, visitors and the next generation of would-be-makers, whether born here or wanting to make their future in our city.”
