Wayne Sables, a South Yorkshire filmmaker, is set to release a documentary on behalf of South Yorkshire Housing Association (SYHA), sharing the best bits from its Moments of Joy arts project.

The Moments of Joy project brought together the housing association and range of art groups - including Yorkshire Artspace, Museums Sheffield, Potclays Limited, Doncaster Community Arts, The Art House Sheffield, Cardboard Citizens, Open Cinema and Theatre Delicatessen, plus freelance artists - for a range of activities.

Sables has been appointed to collate together the most memorable moments of Moments of Joy for a special short documentary.

He said: “We’ve been filming at care homes in Sheffield and Rotherham, capturing the way that residents engage with artists in residence, including composers, dancer and even a brass band.

“We have just eight minutes to capture what really are the moments of joy as people come together in the most special way and are inspired in ways they most probably never thought possible.

“It’s been a great project to be a part of and I look forward to being able to share the finished documentary and spread those moments of joy even more.”
