Wysing Arts Centre, Eastside Projects, Iniva, S1 Artspace, Spike Island and Studio Voltaire, invite applications from artists for Syllabus IV; a collaboratively produced alternative learning programme in its fourth year that will support ten artists across ten months.
Starting in September 2018, the curriculum for Syllabus IV will be built around a series of six intensive gatherings, which the ten selected artists will collaboratively develop with curators and artists who work with the partner organisations, alongside two external Artistic Advisors. This year artist Sonya Dyer and curator Helen Nisbet will be the Artistic Advisors. Syllabus IV participating artists will bring forward ideas to the programme and actively contribute to its design and delivery across the ten months.
Syllabus IV aims to reach artists with a range of practices and artistic approaches and bring together individuals from across the UK. We are particularly keen to support applicants who have not yet had access to similar programmes and artists with Black, Asian or minority ethnic heritage, those who are facing barriers due to difficult socio-economic situations, and artists who identify as LGBTQ+ or have disabilities. We ask applicants to make this clear when applying, if applicable.
The deadline for applications is 12 midnight Monday 7 May. Interviews for The Syllabus will take place the first week of June.
