Site Gallery is Sheffield’s international contemporary art space, specialising in moving image, new media and performance.
Pioneering emerging art practices and ideas, we work in partnership with local, regional and international collaborators to nurture artistic talent and support the development of contemporary art.
We connect people to artists and to art, inspiring new thinking and debate through our exhibitions, talks, events and other public activity.
We work with early career to established artists to commission new work, produce solo and group shows, deliver residencies, performances, events and community programme. Through diverse programming, we reveal the process of making art and invite our audiences and participants to engage, explore and connect.
Site Gallery collaborates with young people from all over Sheffield, from all sorts of backgrounds. We welcome the divergent opinions, experiences and beliefs young people bring to situations and encourage curiosity, provocation and creative conversation.
We commission artists to collaborate with young people to research, experiment and create work that can be shared in the gallery, online or in a range of community settings. This can be a sharing of research, knowledge or artwork.
One of the main ways young people engage with Site Gallery is through the Society of Explorers, an art collective of 14-19 year olds from Sheffield who meet weekly at the gallery.
Site Gallery also runs New Tricks, our skills based workshops which aims to demystify the technology employed by artists and give participants and our volunteers the skills they need to set them on a path of creative exploration. We also run monthly family workshops that are inspired by our exhibition programme or in collaboration with festivals in the city.
