The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

While Site Gallery's doors are closed, it remains open online.

Site Gallery is committed to putting its unique position within new media, moving image and performance to use during lockdown. Introducing WEB/SITE.

WEB/SITE is the gallery's online programme of events and activity. Join and take part in reading groups, live workshops for families, and enjoy a selection of films from its City of Ideas programme. Site will also be delving into its archives, and you can find a selection of long reads relating to our programme over on Site Stories.

On 23 April, the WEB/SITE programme gets underway with the Points of Rupture reading group. The group takes Phoebe Davies’ exhibition as a starting point – read our review of the exhibition to give you more context if you didn't manage to see it before lockdown. It will take place online, with a small number of participants chaired by Site's curator Angelica Sule.

In times like these, it is important to find moments of rest and stillness amidst the activity. We need to catch our breath, have time to think and get ready for whatever comes next. While Shakespeare may have written his greatest work in quarantine, he didn’t have other work, kids or a worldwide crisis to deal with. This session of the reading group will focus not on making the most productive use of your time while at home, but rather allowing the unproductive and taking time for yourself. We will discuss laziness, sleep and doing nothing as a radical form of resistance.

See the readings and details on how to book.

Come back soon for details of other activities in the WEB/SITE programme.
