Site Gallery – Platform: Open Call

Posted on: 09/08/2021

Site Gallery are opening the fourth call for artists to apply for a Platform residency supported by the Freelands Artist Programme.

Each year, five artists from the region are selected to join the programme for two years. Each will receive over £20,000 worth of investment including a fee, specialist support, professional development and opportunities to exhibit. This cohort of artists will begin in January 2022.

The programme is delivered by Site Gallery in partnership with Bloc Projects, S1 Artspace, Museums Sheffield and Yorkshire Artspace. Find out about the three previous cohorts and other information about the programme here.

Each selected artist will participate for a two-year period, receiving £20,000 worth of investment, which includes a fee. Site Gallery’s past residencies have supported many artists to go on to national and international success. Artists have credited the experience as a critical moment in their careers with many gaining important opportunities following their residency. Many have used the initial work to fuel several years of artistic development.

Deadline for applications: Monday 6 September, 11.59pm
