BBC Radio Sheffield logoCreative Shout Out is a new project, started in October 2023 and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, to support Black grassroots creativity to thrive in Sheffield, led by Creative Lives in partnership with BBC Radio Sheffield.

Using our existing Creative Lives On Air model, Creative Shout Out we’ll promote the variety of creative threads that undeniably run through Sheffield's Black communities, through broadcast on BBC Radio Sheffield and a series of events.

We will also be delivering some creative workshops and networking opportunities, so watch this space to learn more.

To kick this work off, BBC Radio Sheffield ran a series of broadcasts to highlight the Young Gifted and Black creatives from some of Sheffield's younger creatives. BBC Radio Sheffield featured fashion entrepreneur Paris Hendricks from The Creative Hub and poet laureate and filmmaker Danae Wellington.
