Throughout 2018 and 2019, Ruskin in Sheffield plans to work with adults and children to use the Ruskin Collection as a source of inspiration and ideas to celebrate and enhance the Ruskinian wealth created by three vital community assets in Sheffield: Park Centre Community Garden in S2, Meersbrook Hall in S8, and Walkley Library in S6.
We are currently fundraising to bring these projects to life, and will announce details of how people can take part, and any public events, in May.
Ruskin at Park Centre Community Garden will be a collaboration with Manor & Castle Development Trust to create new outdoor artworks with local residents.
The Ruskin Museum at Meersbrook Hall will be a collaboration with Friends of Meersbrook Hall, Heeley Trust a range of community groups to learn about and share the heritage of the Ruskin Museum at Meersbrook Hall, to help shape future plans to develop the Hall as a thriving community hub.
Walkley Carnegie Library: Seeing Beauty, Inspiring Minds will be a collaboration with Walkley Carnegie Library and the local community to create comic books, street murals and outdoor sculptures to celebrate and enhance the role of the library to inspire and beautify the neighbourhood.
