We went to the Sheffield Community Network “Digital Media, Digital Makers” conference today to showcase the work we achieved during our Digital Media Centre project.
“Digital Media, Digital Makers” was the final conference of the Sheffield Community Network (SCN) project. It brought together local and national players in the digital and creative economies to discuss the impact of SCN and the opportunities for the future. Local social entrepreneurs and Digital Media Centres showcased the work they had achieved in the project. More information on the event can be seen here: http://sheffieldcommunity.net/dm2-conference-051213/

Here is a selection of some of the work we’ve done so far as part of our Digital Media Centre to help new businesses:
As a well-used community resource based in the heart of Sharrow, Learn for Life Enterprise will use part of their existing premises on London Road to create a digital media hub. We currently support many people from the local BME, migrant, and refugee communities to develop skills, and by creating a Digital Media centre it will allow them to build on these skills to support them to find employment and start businesses in the creative and digital industries. We will also run an innovative ‘Enterprise Club’ where like-minded individuals can share ideas, collaborate, and network.
Learn for Life Enterprise will be working closely with Sharrow Community Forum and Football Unites, Racism Divides to deliver a comprehensive offer to the local area. This will see the creation of a ‘multi-site digital media centre’ where many forms of support can take place. The project is part financed by the European Union European Regional Development Fund. See here for more details from Sheffield Community Network, Sheffield Community Network Autumn Newsletter and remember to visit us at Sharrow Digital Media Centre.
“This is a remarkably exciting and innovative opportunity to work together to enhance digital inclusion in the diverse community of Sharrow.” Hayley Nelson, Learn For Life Enterprise
