Links to all that is Art and Culture in Sheffield

Find below a handy list of arts and cultural organisations in Sheffield…

This list includes arts organisations, galleries, museums, festivals and studios, but also places which hold events or ad hoc exhibitions, such as the cathedral. Some organisations do multiple things with crossover activity so are difficult to categorise… but I’ve done my best.

If I’ve missed anyone off, or you’d prefer to be in a different category let me know and I’ll add you or amend. It’s a work in progress ?

Visual Artists…

The list below doesn’t include individual artists, as lots of arts organisations do this already… if you’re looking for artists check out The following….
