Creative Action Network

We are a celebratory arts organisation and aim to bring creativity to the streets of Sheffield and beyond! Sharrow Lantern Carnival is our main annual event, bringing 3000 people to the streets of Sharrow to dance, showcase their creativity and celebrate our community. This has been our mission for the past 12 years and we continue to volunteer our time to run this free, creative celebration every year. 

If you want to get in touch or fancy CAN coming to your community- call or email Lu
