Festival of the Mind is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield researchers and the city’s artists and makers. It’s a celebration of ideas, culture and creativity.
It’s open to everyone and it’s FREE.
This year’s festival will be bigger than ever.
There will be something for everyone – from family events to entertainment after dark in the beautiful Spiegeltent in Barker’s Pool. There will be music, performance and installations throughout the city.
The University’s most exciting research will be shared in unexpected and inspiring ways themed around Making, Journeys, Virtual, Local & Global, Activism and Utopia/Placemaking.
Our staff and student volunteers work with the city to make something unique happen. So come along and enjoy the spectacular, the intriguing and the beautiful during the Year of Making. Festival of the Mind promises to capture the spirit of invention and collaboration, the love of ideas that makes Sheffield such a wonderful place to live and work.
