Sheffield’s homeless and those struggling to keep a roof over their heads have been taking part in of creative workshops.

Organised by homelessness charity Crisis, the sessions have included urban art and jewellery making.

An exhibition of artwork has also gone on display for members of the public to view.

The sessions in Theatre Delicatessen on The Moor, which run until Monday, September 21, form part of Art in Crisis - a national arts festival celebrating art’s role in ending homelessness and revealing how it allows people to find their place in the world.

An open mic night featuring music, poetry and theatre is to be held tonight, an acting workshop will be held tomorrow and an evening of discussions with leading arts practitioners, activists and academics is planned for Monday, September 21.
