A Part of Sheffield celebration

Monday 10 June 2019, 12 noon – 2pm

The Octagon Centre

Join us for a celebration of our international community and hear from our non-UK EU staff and students about what it means to be a part of Sheffield.

Celebrating our non-UK EU staff

On Monday 10 June, there will be a special event to celebrate our international community and the relaunch of A Part of Sheffield – an exhibition of photography telling the stories of our non-UK EU staff and students who have made a life and home in Sheffield.

This celebration is being jointly hosted by our President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Koen Lamberts and Students’ Union International Students’ Officer Rex Béchu.

Last year we commissioned portrait photographer and Sheffield resident Jeremy Abrahams to photograph 12 colleagues who represent a range of occupations and departments across our University, and a range of EU countries. Hopefully you will have seen some of these images on display around campus.

A Part of Sheffield has now been extended to include new photographs by Jeremy of some of our students from non-UK EU countries. A series of portraits and documentary-style images show staff and students at work or studying and in familiar places in Sheffield, helping to tell their stories about what it means to be a part of Sheffield and how they contribute to our University and city.

Wherever you are from, we would like to invite you to view these images and share how you are a part of Sheffield during a lunchtime event in the Octagon Centre between 12 noon and 2pm on Monday 10 June 2019. You are welcome to drop in at any time during the event, but speeches will be delivered at 12.45pm. Food and drinks will be served and there will be an opportunity to network with colleagues and students before and after the speeches.

Places are available on a first come, first served basis.
