Celebrating a decade of community arts

On 10 October this year we celebrated 10 years of CAST with a celebration-exhibition in the iconic Park Hill building. For a decade, CAST have been supporting people living with mental health difficulties and distress to harness their talents and interests. And for these 10 years they’ve been putting on exhibitions, showcasing the beautiful work created to the wider city. All this has been done, primarily, through the efforts of dedicated, passionate, kind and skillful volunteers. A special thank you to CAST leads Chrissie, Emma and Neil.

This year’s exhibition was one night only: a party to celebrate all the hard work over the years. We were supported by the fantastic Hive IT, who gave us their office space for free, as well as Juice, who helped fund the event through sponsorship.

We were also supported by our community: CAST members and wider Sheffielders who helped make the event really special. Our community is everything to us, so we wanted to do a special shoutout to all the artists who donated their work. The work sold and auctioned was a brilliant mixture of beautiful, fun, interesting and powerful, and raised us over Β£400, so we are massively grateful.

The artists:

If you’re ever looking for an example of a strong, supportive, and long-lasting community, look to CAST.
