Wessex Archaeology and Sheffield Visual Arts Group would like to work with volunteers to create an up-to-date resource showcasing Sheffield’s public artworks.
Volunteers will be asked to record public art in their local area by filling in a survey. These submissions will be used to create a map of Sheffield public artwork.
The survey will include questions that capture data on how the artworks are perceived and valued among local people and will document the condition of the works and provide a factual overview.
Training and support
Volunteers will be offered training and support by WA and SVAG. This will begin with a volunteer induction that will include introductions to heritage recording and photography, how to fill in the survey form, reasons for volunteering and identifying future training areas.
A training programme will run alongside the public artwork recording. Training areas will be identified by volunteers in the inductions and throughout the project. Training between volunteers will be encouraged.
