Site Gallery provides new opportunities for young people in the region to engage with contemporary art through regular groups, one-off events, outreach activity and the creation of accessible interpretation resources.
In 2016, with continued funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, we launch a pioneering programme of artist-led outreach activity across Sheffield – On The Road. This new programme runs alongside the Society of Explorers our active group of 14 – 19 year olds.
The Society of Explorers work closely with Platform artists-in-residence to create their own artwork, produce writing, film and photography about the residencies and run public events. See current projects for more information.
“Site Gallery always puts together an exciting and enviable programme of activities for young people – and its Society of Explorers is one gang we’d love to be in, if only we could do our teenage years all over again.” Our Favourite Places
