Sheffield Modern is an arts festival inspired by the city’s architecture. The focus topic for 2019 was social housing. Emily Barker and I collaborated on a thoroughly researched project where we intended to expose the inhumanities of the current system. We spent weeks of research visiting places of interest around Sheffield and interviewing people who had higher knowledge of the social housing system.

The final piece consisted of a phone box and spoken audio piece that was delivered through a telephone to emulate the endless automated call centres.

Poem written by Aimee Brockley and Emily Barker. Spoken by Jamie Titterton.
