In partnership with Off the Shelf we’re collaborating with Peregrine Church from America on a project called Rainworks. Peregrine has created water-activated art in Seattle with poems that are only visible when it rains.

From October, in what will be a UK premiere, you can get to experience this here in Sheffield. Sites in the city and some out of town will reveal Yorkshire sayings and Sheffield song lyrics, as if by magic, but only when it rains!

In advance of the project going live in Sheffield, the artists, scientists – including Professor Mark Geoghegan – and festival director Professor Vanessa Toulmin discuss the science behind this incredible art.
