Breaking Ground is for anyone aged 15 – 25 wanting to work hands-on, gain useful experiences, be creative or get your voice heard about the things that matter.
Our celebration day is for anyone to come down and check out what we do. It is also for our Breaking Ground group to bring friends and family to see what we’ve been doing. We’ll be making pizza’s in our very own pizza oven and toasting s’mores!

Elle is a creative based in the lovely city of Sheffield. Working primarily as Maker-in-Residence for Brightbox, she also freelances in design and communication. She has worked and volunteered with several Sheffield-based art charities and social-enterprises. Elle is co-founder of community collective established for uniting under-represented groups in the music industry – woman, non-binary and trans folk. Joining the Brightbox team in May 2021, she is eager to grow, play and learn with each community. “Communities will be involved in all parts of design and delivery. Their voices will create the toolkit for co-created events and programming.”
She graduated from BA Product Design in Sheffield, 2018, and worked with a local young-people’s art group before relocating to Bristol to work for a Bath-based design consultancy. Here she focused on trends, foresight and consumer research. She received press-recognition for a project brief she created, Suhka, which focuses on innovating femtech and wellness to become more accessible and inclusive. Just less than year later, she moved back to Sheffield to work more closely with the community and city she loves!
You would normally find her hosting “dhal and decks” evenings every other Wednesday for aspiring DJ’s, music lovers and dancers to meet and share skills. She has been helping to continue connecting people, music and culture together during lockdown through an online series of DIY tutorials, talks and discussions. Other hobbies include cycling, quad roller-skating, gardening or down a rabbit hole discovering new music.
I’m an education student who is interested in empowerment through information and confidence. I want people and communities to share their value and knowledge to shape spaces, places and groups.
