S1 Artspace

S1 Artspace is an artist-led organisation presenting an annual programme of contemporary exhibitions, commissions, screenings and events. S1 also provides studio space for contemporary artists at varying stages in their careers, from recent graduates to established artists working at an international level.

Set up by artists living and working in Sheffield who wanted to create a different type of studio organisation; one where artists would collaborate, share ideas and create opportunities for themselves. It has grown from a modest, voluntary-run studio complex above a thrash metal nightclub in 1995, to an organisation that's now based in a vast industrial warehouse and exhibits work at an international standard. In addition to its artist studios, S1 also accommodates a number of independent creative businesses based in Sheffield including the world renowned Designers Republic, Sheffield Hallam University, Hantu Collective and Yorkshire Tee.
