Arts and Culture

Our programme works with fantastic arts and cultural organisations throughout the city to create a platform for Sheffield Hallam students to gain experience, skills and contacts in this exciting and diverse sector. The programme is open to all students who want to be actively involved in arts & culture (whether that be the focus of your studies or an additional interest).
