Making Our Way

A copy of Making Our Way can be found here

- Making Our Way was developed under the guidance of the Making Ways Steering Group, the governance body for Making Ways, an Ambition for Excellence project awarded to Sheffield Culture Consortium.

- It is a legacy of the Making Ways project and identifies core goals and aims for the sector. It was written collaboratively, reflecting individual and collective ambitions of the Visual Art community in Sheffield and helping to drive this agenda.

- It advocates for visual art in the city - outlining a strategic approach to developing Sheffield as a place for art and articulating the importance of this to non-arts organisations and businesses whilst allowing individuals and organisations to link in to the overarching aims.

- It recognises that collaborative working, the sharing of intelligence and resources, investment in talent and the development of innovative partnerships can help create initiatives that reach within communities to build new audiences, strengthen engagement and connect to peers nationally and internationally.
