The Story of Unlock Woodhouse, Sheffield >>
Siggy has developed and delivered Unlock workshops around the themes of hospitality and migration and an art project on the theme of Bible Women. She has also developed local art projects around Harvest, Halloween, Easter and Cristmas and is fostering creative connections between the church, the community and local businesses. She has developed relationships with local homelessnes and addiction projects and has a resource on Homelessness.
Unlock Woodhouse ran a card design competition on the theme of 'What Christmas Means to Me'. The winning design was by Ian Debeddyn and we have used it for our Unlock Christmas cards this year. You are welcome to print them off and use them too (see below).

Steve has provided Unlock taster/training sessions in North Sheffield during 2011 and is also developing work which facilitates local communities exploring their community stories, and comparing them with stories in the Bible. Steve's work is supported by the Unlock Sheffield Local Team.
