Let’s share what YOU think makes Sheffield so fun and adventurous in a Sheffield Adventure Suitcase!
As a child or as an adult, there is nothing more fun than remembering and sharing with others what makes our hometown so special.
Whether you were born in Sheffield, are new to Sheffield, or grew up in Sheffield, you will have your favourite memories, places, objects and people, all of which you could tell others about, to help describe our wonderful city.
Think about the parks, museums, local shops, traditional food, rivers, accents, ice cream, your home, neighbours, school, mosque, church, market....
Imagine you are able to pack up everything you love about Sheffield in a suitcase. What would it contain?
We challenge you to create a real suitcase full of your memories and ideas and share this with your friends and family.
What to do
- First share your thoughts with others, discuss and exchange ideas.
- Use a cardboard box, shoe box or something else you think is suitable as your Sheffield Adventure Suitcase.
- Draw, write about, or make the things you love the most about Sheffield. You could include photographs and newspaper cuttings to help recreate your memories and ideas.
Share the contents of your Sheffield Adventure Suitcase with your friends and family.
Ask them to guess what they are.
Do they like similar things?
Each of us will hold a unique relationship to Sheffield. Why not consider the special things, values, heritage you or your family have brought to Sheffield too.
Feel free to share what YOU love about Sheffield, or what YOU have brought to Sheffield from your home country/town.
