Both students and longer term residents submitted artwork which included an eclectic mix of paintings, photography, print and mixed media pieces to create a unique snapshot of the city. Over 800 people visited the exhibition over the course of the week.
SHEFFIELD TORCH RELAY CELEBRATIONS!
Prior to the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Olympic Torch spent 70 days touring the United Kingdom. The Torch arrived in Sheffield for an evening celebration, on Monday, June 25th.
Sheffield hosted one of the 66 evening celebrations on the Olympic Flame’s journey across the UK. This was one of only 5 celebrations in Yorkshire and the Humber and was free for spectators to watch.
Hallam Union worked with local art organisation Art in the Park and Sheffield City Council to organise activities for the local community to celebrate the Olympic Flame coming to the City on Monday 25th June 2012.
The celebration event took place on Devonshire Green and the community was invited to come along and take part in free craft activities and watch performances from Hallam students and local community groups. The event was supported by Hallam Union volunteers.
The event was a great build-up to the evening celebrations that took place in Sheffield City Centre.
Hallam Union & Art in The Park launched Identity as part of Platform Festival.
Students were invited to submit work to the exhibition based on the theme of Identity. Each artist responded to this theme in their own way. The exhibition was coordinated by students who also ran the front of house and the preview event.

Hallam Union hosted a student art-takeover at The HUBS in November 2011. The theme of the exhibition was white and black. Students of any discipline were invited to submit work in any shape and size, provided it fit the brief of white and black. The exhibition was free to attend, and open to both students and the general public. It received fantastic feeback from the public, as one person commented that ”Sheffield Hallam is full of talented artists!”
The Union also held a preview of the exhibition called art-therapy@ White & Black. The preview included DIY art, music and live art.
