City of Ideas was a partnership of major cultural organisations in the Cultural Industries Quarter area of Sheffield.

Through ambitious public art commissioning, collaborative events and talks programmes, and a critical exploration of the value of public space in contemporary cities, City of Ideas made tangible the international impact of Sheffield’s home grown cultural talent, and influenced how city centres will look in the future.

City of Ideas partners: Site Gallery, Yorkshire Artspace, Showroom Workstation, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Children’s Media Conference, Eclipse Theatre, Forced Entertainment and ArtWorks.

A series of talks are available to view on YouTube.

City of Ideas was supported by Arts Council’s Ambition for Excellence fund. For more information, contact
