Events and Exhibitions
In the late 1980s and 90s Sheffield reached a pivotal moment in its history, one which saw it begin a journey of regeneration and transformation into the city we know today. The first steps on that journey were documented by a group of gifted photographers whose work reflected both the hope and hard realities of the time. Today, as major developments in the city see its landscape continuing to evolve, a new exhibition at Weston Park Museum re-presents those original photographs to chronicle a significant turning point for Sheffield and its people.

The work of Sade Mica explores her experiences navigating the world as a queer, black person and the nuances that brings in fleshing out an identity that is often met with contempt and confusion.
