Do It Thissen
Event contact email@example.com
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. They can be of anything, you and your friends, groups, Sheffield, the Union, having a good time.
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. 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.
Do it Thissen is 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.
