Some of our drummers performed at Sharrow Festival today…
See below for some videos of The Other People’s Choir from the Creative Edge Songwriting workshop led by Learn for Life Enterprise. Creative Edge is a creative arts project run in partnership with Sheffield Cathedral, The Cathedral Archer Project, Learn for Life Enterprise and Stories from the Street.
Members of the Creative Edge Drumming Group will be performing and running a workshop for HARC (Homeless and Rootless at Christmas) between 4 – 5 pm on Sunday 29th December. This will take place at the usual venue in the Domino Hall in the Cathedral Resources Centre, Campo Lane, Sheffield. Our drummers are also invited to a meal or coffee before or after the event. All drummers are warmly invited to join us.
Creative Edge participants (the choir and the other peoples choir/guitar songwriting group) are invited to sing carols at The Lister Project in Gleadless. The Lister Project provides long-term supported accommodation to 25 service users with enduring mental health problems. The performance will be on Thursday 19th December, meeting place at 6:30 at 2A Base Green Road. It’s located on the blue tram route towards Half Way and the stop to get off is White Lane. All singers are welcome.
On Sunday 21st July we are organising the Tramlines Creative Edge showcase which is happening in the Sheffield Cathedral Conference Centre. There will be two stages – one in the Domino Hall and one in the Garden, with a bar throughout the afternoon.
Alongside the performances will be the showing of the Creative Edge films, Creative Writing, Photography and Art exhibition.
