In June 2018 Site Gallery, along with project partners Yorkshire Artspace, S1 Artspace, Bloc Projects and Museums Sheffield, was awarded £375,000 by the Freelands Foundation to support the professional development of 20 Sheffield-based artists over 5 years.
Each selected artist will participate for a two year period, receiving £20,000 worth of investment. This will include a fee, specialist support and professional development.
Site Gallery’s past residencies have supported many artists to go to national and international success. Artists have credited the experience as a critical moment in their careers with many gaining important opportunities following their residency. Many have used the initial work to fuel several years of artistic development.
