an invitation to assemble with ark sheffield

 

Join RESOLVE and SADACCA for three-days of exciting workshops and social events as we collaboratively prepare for the 'flood'. We'll eat, move, listen, act and assemble together at the G-Mill event space, where we'll create an installation inscribed with stories of movement, migration, memory and climate justice. On 6th April you're invited to travel with the installation as it moves through the centre of Sheffield and takes up temporary residence in the Adelphi Rooms at Sheffield Theatres as part of Together in the City. Find out how to join us at the crucible on 6th April.
