CADS & OTHER PROGRAMMES The creative studio and development spaces are just one aspect of CADS, which also created and supports several associated organisations including SKINN, Dirty Little Secret, SPORF and Sheffield Art Forge. These organisations help CADS to reach it’s wider aims while forging links within the local and international community and promoting new talent in a range of areas. Programs run by DLS and the Art Forge help to establish CADS as a supporter of local businesses and a platform for upcoming artists. The SKINN projects work to encourage regeneration of the local area, and SPORF, a fourth program which is currently being established, aims to become a marketplace for the creative community, supporting artists, including those already based at CADS, by showcasing and selling their work online.

Studio Holders Ele Maudsley Ele Maudsley is a jewellery maker and silversmith, who graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in June 2011. Soon after that she began renting a workshop space in Pebbledash Studios, where her focus is on creating ‘wearable art’, objects that function as sculptural pierces as well as jewellery that can interact with the body. Inspired by natural forms, surrealism and the Steampunk aesthetic, Ele combines skills such as etching and anticlastic raising in order to create pieced that are bold, versatile and theatrical. Ele’s work has been displayed in exhibitions across Sheffield, such as in

‘Galvanize’ at the Furnival Gallery in 2011, and the 2012 ‘Under The Sea’ exhibition at the Millennium Galleries. Working as a self employed artist, Ele received a commended award for Smallworkers Design from the Goldsmith’s Craft and Design Council Awards in 2011. She was also featured in the ‘New Designers’ exhibition at the Business Design Centre in London. Recently, Ele has created a more commercial range of jewellery for the ‘One for Luck’ vintage and craft fair, and is looking ahead at creating more intricate pieces inspired by Victorian technology and Gothic architecture. www.elemaudsleydesign.co.uk

Studio Holders Dangernoise Audio Dangernoise audio recognises sound as being one of the primary universal energies/organizational principles. What started out as a hobby project for two grumpy sound techs has over the years developed organically into a small-scale system hire and bespoke speaker cabinet business. End of 2013 will see the launch of something very special – the culmination of several years’ research – in the form of a totally horn-loaded quasi four-way loudspeaker system. The driving ideals and concepts behind the development of the system are common sense, cohesion, efficiency, sustainability and above all fidelity to the source material. www.dangernoiseaudio.com

CADS Programmes Art Forge

Sheffield Art Forge was originally formed by CADS members, and is now incorporated as a separate, non-profit organisation which manages the Arts Programme at CADS. With the aim of delivering innovative, high quality events as well as supporting emerging artists, Sheffield Art Forge has been active in the area since October 2010, and manages the programming of arts events, making use of the warehouse spaces to put on exhibitions and workshops at the Shalesmoor venue. As well as featuring local talent in its exhibitions, Sheffield Art Forge also showcases work from international artists, particularly those working

page 16

with new and digital media. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging artistic collaboration and providing informal, contemporary exhibitions that are accessible to a diverse audience. Past exhibitions have included ‘The Globalsapiens Collective’, featuring local artists Mikk Murray, John Ledger and Jade Morris, and ‘Requiem for A Post Soviet Dream’, which exhibited the work of Lithuanian artist Augustinas Naslenas. In 2011, Sheffield Art Forge hosted ‘Regenerate’, a seven month programme of events exhibiting local talent, graduates and artists featured in “Now Then” magazine,

as well as workshops and performances in association with Sensoria festival. You can read more about Regenerate on next page. Sheffield Art Forge also hosts ‘The Cucumber Lounge’ a regular event which features live music, art exhibitions, performances and DJ’s. As part of the scheme’s outreach program, The Cucumber Lounge attracts a range of audiences and creates opportunities for artistic development by showcasing the work of local talent such as musicians like Loveboat and Motherfolkers, as well as artists Jessica Wong, Stephen Milligan and Stuart Faulkner.

CADS Programmes Art Forge: Regenerate In 2011, Sheffield Art Forge hosted Regenerate, an eight month long programme that held art exhibitions, workshops, music events, performances and commissions. Regenerate’s programme included a two week exhibition of audio visual art, called ‘Listen Up’, as well as the ‘Explore’ mural commission showcase, in partnership with ‘Now Then’ magazine. Events featuring circus performances, upcoming musicians and live painting were also part of the line up, and from June to September, CADS also invited three recent fine art graduates to work and display their art, based around the theme of re-

page 17

generation, as part of the project. The graduates were given a free studio space at CADS for the three months duration, at the end of which the artists had a two week exhibition of works produced. As part of Sheffield Art Forge’s aim to promote emerging talent and showcase the best in contemporary art forms, Regenerate was open to a wide range of audiences, from children and families to students, as well as those in the local art scene. The project aimed to provide a culture boost to an often overlooked, industrial area of Sheffield, and to raise public awareness of reusing former industrial space

for creative activity. The ‘Listen Up’ exhibition worked to establish Sheffield Art Forge as a promoter of cutting edge electronic and digital art, and through the Explore and Regenerate commission scheme, local artists were given the opportunity to network and publicise their work. The graduate exhibitions forged links between the Art Forge and Sheffield universities, and the Now Then mural showcase provided publicity for the programme as well as showcasing a diverse selection of local artists. Through its varied line-up and comprehensive promotion, Regenerate worked to increase awareness of CADS as well as Sheffield Art Forge.

CADS Programmes Art Forge: Listen Up As part of Regenerate, the Listen Up exhibition ran for two weeks at the end of April, and featured a selection of local artists working with sound to create audio-visual installations and sound sculptures. The exhibition explored the relationship between sounds and their relative environment, by utilising space both indoors and outside of CADS. Featured artists included: Mark Fell, whose work with synthetic sound, light and experimental technologies is recognised internationally; Neil Webb, an audio visual artist

page 18

and lecturer in sound at Sheffield Hallam University; Adrian Moore, an electro-acoustic composer who writes music intended for sound diffusion over multiple loudspeaker systems, and sound designer Ron Wright, whose research concerns the relationship between audio and landscapes both real and imagined. The exhibition shifted from the more familiar representations of audio art to the more abstract and surreal, and aimed to engage visitors with sound as an artistic medium beyond its typical use.

The work exhibited ranged from unusual musical practises to installation pieces, and employed the entire CADS facility. As well as its exhibition event, Listen Up also hosted an evening of performances in association with the Sensoria film and music festival. The event featured a variety of sonic artists, some of whom were featured in the exhibition, and presented pieces with a range of approaches to sound, such as soundscapes, algorithmic and electroacoustic music.

CADS Programmes SKINN: 50 ideas for better Sheffield 50 Ideas for better Sheffield was a collaboration between SKINN & Sheffield School of Architecture (SSoA) as part of Festival of the Mind, Sep 2012 Every year, the SSoA and Department of Landscape carry out an enormous amount of practical research into various aspects of Sheffield. This research could involve cataloguing area development, finding uses for empty shops, or creating an outdoor installation inside a former cutlery factory. However, much of this research is only presented once, at project reviews to an audience of university students and staff. After this initial presentation, the research

page 22

is shelved, meaning that huge amounts of important information are inaccessible to individuals and organisations in the city that may be able to use it. 50 ideas for a better Sheffield reviewed such projects from the last 10 years, and presented it in the context of contemporary Sheffield, linking it with current local initiatives. The public part of the project included a week-long exhibition and an evening of talks and presentations at CADS. Both events aimed to facilitate creative dialog between people of the city, Sheffield City Council, the SSoA, and non-public organisations working on the ground.
