CADS is a grassroots Sheffield arts charity, providing and supporting access to arts, culture and creativity since 2009. In 2009, CADS Founder, Steve Rimmer, took on three studio spaces in Kelham Island in order to house equipment for his music promotions company. He soon realised that the spaces he had were slightly too big for him so he sought out other artists to take on two of the studios. Before long more people started to contact Steve enquiring about studio spaces; so much so that he decided to set up a studio complex in Shalesmoor, and so CADS was born!
