“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
We provide 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.
The Society of Explorers is a self-named contemporary art collective of 14-19 year olds. They collaborate with practitioners to discuss, respond and create.
One of their current big projects is an amazing artist-led outreach activity – On The Road. They will be operating from a soon-to-be transformed white van, travelling around Sheffield while the Site Gallery venue is closed for expansion, while continuing to meet weekly at Site Gallery on Wednesdays.
We are always looking for new explorers to join them so find out more by clicking the links, and please get in touch if you are interested.
