Silent Cities

Based in the Shalesmoor and Neepsend area, Silent Cities have developed a Digital Media Centre which builds upon the grass-roots projects they have already undertaken.

Using their established client base they bring together different communities suffering from economic disadvantage to engender a culture of knowledge-sharing and social entrepreneurship.

They work closely with clients to provide hands-on mentoring and access to digital technologies, as well as the know-how to turn these experiences into sustainable jobs and businesses. Silent Cities actively seeks to give a voice to those who are otherwise not heard by giving them the opportunity to participate in citizen journalism, video and music creation, social media and online content. Silent Cities  works very closely with Sheffield Art Forge to deliver a diverse offer for the communities of Shalesmoor, Kelham Island and Neepsend. This will see the creation of a ‘dual-site digital media centre’ where many forms of support can take place.
