What is Tall Shadows?
Tall Shadows – The Sheffield Story Collective is a young people’s cultural project in Sheffield. Groups of young people from across the city will work with Chol to develop and launch a number of clubs in everyday locations, where young people can meet, discuss issue and topics that are important to them and create artwork in response. Together we will instigate and co-create new social artistic experiences for young people.
To see an example of how we will be working here is a short documentary filmed and edited by Sean Lovell, www.seanlovell.com, detailing one of the projects with Sheffield College.
Tall Shadows Launch
We officially launched the project on Thursday the 12th of May to a packed reception of young people, community workers, artists and families at the Crucible, with poet Otis Mensah performing as our guest. During the event we introduced our 6 new young producers, 3 new Tall Shadows Ambassadors and presented a performance by young people on the topic of “home’’ and what home means when you’re from more than one place.
