Manor Boy is a solo exhibition by Conor Rogers inspired by his childhood on the Manor Estate in Sheffield. Through painting, spoken word poetry, sound installation and sculpture, Rogers engages with and interrogates the demonisation of the estate and its residents in both local imagination and national press.

Platform is an established artistic development programme at Site Gallery which allows artists to explore new ideas in a public space, testing new thinking and research with engaged audiences.The multi-site exhibition will be presented in three iterations at Site Gallery, Yorkshire Artspace and Bloc Projects and feature work made by James Clarkson, Maud Haya-Baviera, Victoria Lucas, Conor Rogers and Joanna Whittle.

The open call for artists to be included in Platform 22 is now live. The two-year residency provides £20,000 worth of investment (including a fee of £5,000 per year) to five artists based in Sheffield. Click here for more information.
