SDP 29: Sharna Jackson on Site Gallery and Sheffield’s contribution to digital arts and culture
It’s time for episode 29 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast! We were delighted to welcome Sharna Jackson, Artistic Director at Site Gallery and soon-to-be-published children’s author.
Sharna has an action-packed background in arts, culture and all things digital. We spoke to her about her career so far, how she ended up in Sheffield and some of the ways that digital technology may influence the team’s work at Site Gallery.
We also asked Sharna about her role in establishing Playground, an exhibition for kids run as part of the Children’s Media Conference, as well as Sheffield’s reputation for digital arts and culture.
Honestly, we had such fun chatting and covered so much ground, it’s hard to be specific on what we did talk about! But needless to say, if you have any interest at all in how digital and the arts come together, you’re going to enjoy this very much.
In the second half of the show, we cover a range of news and events-based topics, including:
the upcoming second Sheffield Digital Showcase
the city’s Digital Awards as launched by Sheffield Star
various meetings and conferences attended by Mel and Chris.
Don’t forget, if your podcast app of choice supports chapters, you can skip merrily between sections with the tap of a finger or tip of your nose. Seriously, it works very well if you have your hands full. Enjoy the show!
