Personal stories from Sheffield’s activists past and present will be showcased at an upcoming one day event.

Snapshots of the city’s past, and its rich history of campaign experience since the 1960s will be shared.

Themes include trade unionism, labour and employment, women’s issues, environmentalism, community-building, refugees, immigration and human rights.

There will be opportunities for audience members to offer their own memories, and interest will be canvassed for furture activities.

Gay, lesbian and transgender choir Out Aloud will open the event.

The event is co-organised by the University of Sheffield’s Centre for the Study of Democratic Culture and the Centre for Peace History.

It takes place on Saturday September 10 at the Workstation, on Paternoster Row.

Entry is free, but places are limited. Contact Gary Rivertt at politicalengagement@sheffield.ac.uk for more information or to register..
