Site Gallery attracts inquisitive and brilliant young people. They come to the gallery from all over Sheffield, from all backgrounds. They have divergent opinions and beliefs, and they spark off each other. They collaborate, create, discuss, challenge and respond. By getting stuck in and sharing their ideas, they help us create better arts opportunities for young people.
One of the main ways young people get involved in Site Gallery is through the Society of Explorers.
“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
The ‘Explorers’ is an art collective of 14-19 year olds from Sheffield that meets at Site Gallery. In Summer 2017, they launched their amazing Art Van – On The Road. They helped the gallery team transform a white van into an exceptional mobile gallery and workshop space, commissioning architects and artists and putting their plans into action.
