Were You Into Music Whilst A Student At The University of Sheffield?

 

Were you into music whilst a student at The University of Sheffield?

Do you have any memories or photos you would like to share for an exhibition?

Do It Thissen is an exhibition of record sleeves, photographs and fanzines from the Sheffield and South Yorkshire music scene 1978–1982. We’re preparing the material now and we need your help! The exhibition is taking place in late September and is part of the University of Sheffield’s Festival of the Mind.

We’ve got records from all the local bands, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, Clock DVA, Vice Versa and many others. We’re focusing on post-punk and emphasising links between students and the city. Do It Thissen is, of course, ‘do it yourself’ in Yorkshire English.

What we’re looking for is your photos and memories of that time, especially if you were into music or even better, were in a band. We’ve set up a Facebook group to share photos and recollections. The curators would love to use anything at all. They can be of anything, you and your friends, bands, Sheffield, the Union, whatever you recollect. Upload it here and we’ll put it in the exhibition: http://www.facebook.com/DoItThissen

If you’re not on Facebook, then you could email Dr. Matt Cheeseman, one of the curators at matt.cheeseman@sheffield.ac.uk. He’ll upload it to Facebook for you.

Do come along, we’d love to see you. It’s being held in Montgomery Hall on Surrey Street in Sheffield, opposite the Town Hall from Sunday 23rd–Sunday 30th September. The exhibition will also feature work from contemporary artists, who have been asked to respond to the material: Tim Allcard, Couk, Lesley Guy, and Sid & Mallory. The opening, on Saturday 22nd, will feature a talk by Martin Lacey, editor of NMX fanzine (and DJ at the Union’s Now Society) as well as a DJ performance by Jon Downing, one of the exhibition’s curators. There will be all day DJing on Sunday September 23rd, and a record deck on hand during the week. There will also be a showing of Eve Wood’s film, ‘Made In Sheffield’ and other performances planned for the 29th and 30th September.

It’s part of the Festival of the Mind, a collaboration between the City and the University of Sheffield which showcases its cultural strengths. The Festival runs from 20–30 September 2012.

Best wishes,

Matt
