The Society of Explorers is a collective of culturally-curious 14-18 year olds that renews each year. They meet once a week to discuss and do, and work as a collective to develop their own projects and ideas. They are a vital voice in the Site Gallery community. .
When you join you will start by creating a manifesto for your year and act upon that – the work you do is led by you. Activities could include leading workshops and events, collaborating with artists, learning digital media skills and gaining experience of working in a leading contemporary gallery. Previous projects include VJ workshops, designing an interactive board game, curating a stage within a music festival and learning how to make music with code.
Who is it for?
It’s for you.
The Society of Explorers is an opportunity for you to become stakeholders in Site Gallery and the Sheffield creative community. As a gallery we must be representative of all of Sheffield, so it is important that the group is too.
Site Gallery is an actively anti-racist organisation and through all of our opportunities look to amplify the voices of those who are marginalised and underrepresented. We are especially interested in hearing from young people who live outside the city centre and/or haven’t accessed the gallery before.

Deadline for applications is September 21st.
