Corner of Paradise
Posted on 29.04.2019
You’re invited to re-imagine Paradise, for an exhibition of ideas, art and photos at Millennium Gallery on 29-30 June.
Paradise is right here in Sheffield. You’ll find it backing onto a pizza restaurant, hidden away behind the Anglican cathedral, just off a narrow lane lined with office blocks. Well, a place called Paradise, at least. Paradise Square is a pretty spot, with its Georgian townhouses and cobbled slopes. But not much stirs in Paradise these days – certainly nothing like it did a few hundred years ago. Radical thinking and big ideas once energised this corner of Sheffield. In the late 18th century, Paradise Square became the town’s main public meeting place, and for the next hundred years people came together here to consider new ways of living.
To find out how you can contribute to Paradise, pick up a leaflet from the Experience Sheffield Shop on Surrey Street (next to The Winter Garden), or click here.
Theis event forms part of Making Ways, a programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.
