The Enable Us Project was started in 2017. It provides a platform within the University of Sheffield Performance Venues to bring audiences, artists and the University community together to experience, inspire and be inspired by performances that stimulate thought and broaden understanding, as well as providing access to workshops, training and development.
In our twice yearly Enable US Festivals, we are enabling new and innovative performing arts companies to perform in Sheffield, companies that may not have previously had a platform to present their work in the city. The Enable US Festivals take place at the Drama Studio for two weeks in Spring and two weeks in Autumn. They attract a growing audience from Sheffield and beyond to enjoy performances that are new, inspiring and exciting.
Our artistic programme encourages opportunities for students at the University of Sheffield to work alongside professional arts practitioners, to develop their own creativity and to grow as individuals. We also aim to develop work based learning programmes and internships within the cultural and creative professions.
