From my place to our space

From Sheffield Libraries Staff News

Schools and Young People’s Library Service have been successful in their bid for funding from the Positive Activities for Young People (PAYP) programme. The money will be used to host
arts and cultural activities in libraries across the city for 8-13 year olds, starting in the summer holidays and continuing until March 2010.

The project is called ‘From my place to our space’ and encourages young people to explore their sense of individual and community space through creative arts. We are currently gathering proposals from creative practitioners to run workshops, one-off events or performances, encompassing filmmaking, photography, music, theatre, art, media, digital technologies, graphics and design. The project gives libraries the chance to host exciting, contemporary events which will encourage young people to see the library as a space they can utilise and enjoy.
