***Due to the Coronavirus outbreak our museums are currently closed and this event has unfortunately been cancelled. We will be exploring  opportunities to reschedule over the coming weeks***

This Symposium brings together developers, planners, academics, cultural practitioners, community groups and more to explore some of the themes raised in the Invisible Wounds exhibition.

The symposium will demonstrate how artists, and the work they create,contribute to conversations around the perception of sites with difficult or traumatic histories. It aims to bring about changes in how such sites are understood, thought about, approached and potentially used by all those people who, in one way or another, engage with them.

The day will include an exhibition tour, insight from keynote speakers, dialogue and provocations including thematic roundtable sessions, a plenary panel discussion with Q&A and networking opportunities.

Speakers and contributors include:

  • Dr Amanda Crawley Jackson, Senior Lecturer in French and Francophone Studies & Faculty Director of Knowledge Exchange and Impact (Arts & Humanities), The University of Sheffield & exhibition curator
  • Councillor Bob Johnson, Cabinet Member for Transport and Development, Sheffield City Council
  • Professor Christoph Lindner, The Bartlett, UCL Faculty of the Built Environment
  • Simon Norfolk, photographer
  • Daniel Barker, Director, Peterloo Estates

Lunch is provided.
