Rose Sergent is a visual artist and arts producer making work in Manchester.

As an artist she has worked with Oldham Coliseum, Contact Theatre, Greater Manchester Combined Authority and more. Rose’s art often focusses on highlighting societal disparities for ill/disabled people through bright and bold digital art. She is currently working with Little Lost Robot to develop a series of artwork and a zine about gig access called ‘Some Punks Need to Sit Down at Gigs’.

She started and runs the Drawn Poorly project which focuses on art exploring the reality of living with health conditions and disability.
