Cafe Co-ordinator / Chef job description
In 2016, DINA - Sheffield Arts Centre - was converted from a derelict pub & nightclub complex into a multi-storey building that became the heart of alternative arts and culture in Sheffield.
We recently moved out of our original venue on Cambridge Street and found a new and exciting space on Fitzalan Square, a small but beautiful unit in the historic White Building.
We host all types of events with a specific interest in developing and nurturing new talent, social projects, and those that are at the core of the lovely Sheffield community and we are a centre for LGBTQ events and communities.
