Smizz & I took Re:Advertise to Ania Bas’ amazing PX event in Parson Cross yesterday. An entire day of creative participatory art in the heart of one of Sheffield’s communities. We enjoyed getting more responses to the project with words that were specially sourced from the local shops. We talked to local residents, watched Ozzie Owl get his blood pressure taken, explored the magnificent SOAR Works building, and enjoyed plentiful cups of tea.
Pictured here is our favourite response from the day, from 11 year old local girl Leah who has a real zest for life, great aspirations and is a real inspiration. Her message is a great positive text and one I might just adopt as a mantra:
“Self-determination is a display of great self-esteem.”
