It is interesting to see how areas of cities develope. The old markets area in the centre of Sheffield is getting a revamp courtesy of ordinary folks who have an interest in music, the arts, performance and small business. I was down at Bal fashions for the Wub Club event the other night and had a great time. The bar there is awesome and the efforts put in by all concerned was truly amazing. Rite Trax are opening up a place just a couple of doors down, Plot something or other, name TBD, where studios will sit beside a general business, meeting and event area. Here you see businesses geographically close helping each other. It is just a shame that the local council do not share the same attitude at times. It seems that they are more interested in the big corporate side of things. So many times we have seen small and enjoyable venues, interesting shops and ventures closed down courtesy of the council’s narrow point of view. But the artists, performers, craftspeople and small businesses of Sheffield still continue to create exciting places, events and products.
Opposite these ventures is the old Market Tavern – now there was a place with character. It may yet get a boost with new owners. Just below that is Frehiwet Habesha, an Eritrean restaurant cum cafe. More is being planned by a whole range of people. This is an area that could become something very special if we give it some support and enjoy what is being offered.
RiteTrax CIC is a newly formed social enterprise based in Sheffield, aimed at providng a platform for underground creative culture.
After the festival which you can see below, I will be djing and, hopefully, vjing at the after party. Then in a little while I will also be performing at my old stomping ground for Rite Trax – the Corporation! As always these events are a real rainbow of activity – art, poetry, live music, dj performance, vj performance – so much, and they attract such a range of people.

Art is …
sometimes a statement, an expression, a comment …
it can be grand and glorious or small, distressed, torn …
it can seem quite ordinary but because it has been placed in ‘a frame’ it has special meaning …
… sometimes the word itself is just a little too much because of all the baggage that can go with it, but then you find something, hear something and the ordinary, the odd moment suddenly has new and added meaning and depth …
a variety of odd backgrounds, environment textures and similar – a variety of formats – jpg, png,svg – something to add to any project, using all sorts of materials in a variety of palettes, extending
