More than 130 people attended the celebratory opening of a vibrant new creative hub in Sheffield which will widen arts and cultural participation in the city.
The Utopia Theatre Creative Hub is the vision of Mojisola Kareem-Elufowoju, CEO and Artistic Director at Utopia Theatre, who identified the need to create a hub for creative professionals as well as an inspiring and welcoming place to introduce more people to theatre and arts.
Kareem-Elufowoju said: “Having the chance to express yourself through theatre, whether that’s acting, singing or dancing, helps to boost confidence and build community connections. Our Utopia Theatre Creative Hub is a safe and inclusive space providing affordable opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to learn new things in a supportive environment. Through our workshops and classes, they will have fun and learn new skills. We will help people to find their voice and speak out about issues that concern them and their communities.
