Established in 1995, Rogue is a Community Interest Company providing members with accessible and affordable workspace in Manchester city centre. A five minute walk from Piccadilly Station, Rogue is now the largest independent studio group in the North West with ninety seven artists working in 30,000 square feet of space over three floors of Crusader Mill. Members range from recent graduates to established practitioners working in a wide range of disciplines and media; including drawing, film and video, illustration, installation, interactive art, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and textiles.
 
Rogue will be relocating during 2017, and we will be announcing the opening of our new studios as soon as possible. 
 
Once a year, Rogue opens its doors to the public in its Open Studios event inviting fellow artists, curators and the general public to access all areas of the studios while affording members an opportunity to exhibit and offer work for sale. This years Rogue Open Studios, our last at Crusader Mill, will take place over the weekend of 14th - 16th October 2016.
 
Rogue also runs a programme of events in the Project Space, which is used primarily for temporary exhibitions, residency and exchange projects and one-off events. Rogue's new Project Space is on the 1st floor of the studios. and information about a special programme of exhibitions and events to mark the end of our time at Crusader Mill is posted below.
