Back in March we told you about an exciting piece of work we were doing in Upperthorpe as part of the Shared Vision project.

The project saw local artists and residents, including South Yorkshire Housing Association customers, team up with local filmmaker, Ian Nesbitt, to explore what makes Upperthorpe such a unique place to live.

The film is an imagined walk from the Edward Street Flats, through Netherthorpe and Upperthorpe, to its northern boundary at the edge of the Philadelphia Green Space, before moving on to the site of the former Kelvin Flats.

We’re delighted to announce that the full feature length video is now available online. To take a look just click on the link below.

The project is a partnership between the Social Housing Arts Network, South Yorkshire Housing Association and funded by Arts Council England.
