Established in 1995 Rogue is a not-for-profit, co-operative that supports visual arts practice by providing artists with accessible and affordable studios in Manchester city centre. Rogue now houses sixty artists over two floors of studios and includes a project space used primarily for residency and exchange projects. One of the largest independent artists’ studio groups operating in the North West, artist members range from recent graduates to established practitioners and work in a wide range of disciplines and media.
Rogue Studios are housed in a converted Mill building, situated behind Piccadilly Train Station in Manchester City Centre. The individual studios have been divided using plasterboard walls and most spaces have natural light. The studios have a communal computer suite and internet access available to all members. Rogue has 24 hour access. Due to the nature of the building, some of the spaces do not come in standard dimensions, but they roughly split into two main sizes: small: 2.5m x 2.5m approx; large: 5m x 5m approx.
