The Art of Compassion and Imagination conference

Join us as we explore The Art of Compassion and Imagination.

Bringing together representatives from research, the creative community, health, voluntary sector and education we aim to examine how creativity can open up compassion and common understanding for all of us. We will delve into how this connection between the imagination and compassion can then guide and aid us in exploring social issues and difficult topics as well as reaching out into our communities. Featuring insightful talks, activities, group discussion and creative workshops.


Please keep an eye on the Ignite Imaginations Facebook page for more details on the speakers and workshop content.

Then stay with us for more networking and discussion about volunteering in the creative sector. Attendees are welcome to attend both or just one of these events on the day.

3-5pm - Community Makers: If you can only make this section of the day please email me directly with your request to attend.

Are you a creative or community/voluntary sector organisation that delivers creative activity in the community? From dance to creative writing, to sewing groups to choirs- if your organisation is a delivery organisation or supports those that do we want to connect with you.


We want to bring representatives from organisations to:

- Network and explore future ways to connect

- To discuss how we can map the spread of delivery within the city (recognising the gaps and needs in communities)

- Introduce the Sheffield Community Makers scheme; an opportunity for the city to develop, connect and offer coordinated, attractive and manageable creative volunteer opportunities funded by Arts Council England and supported by VAS.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch on enquiries@igniteimaginations.org.uk
