For the next couple of weeks you will be able to see the Fairness on the 83 exhibition. With interviews of people along the route, the exhibition charts social inequality across Sheffield. The exhibition is in Castle House as part of the the excellent Festival of the Mind, and will also be on Fargate this Friday (19th).
The exhibition was the initiative of the marvellous Opus Independents, who also produce the magazine Now Then, which this month has a good article about the exhibition, and inequality in Sheffield.
