Platform residency


Site’s Platform programme enables artists to take over the public galleries and use them as a working public studio in which to make new work. Unlike a traditional research and development residency, visitors to the gallery will be able to enter the space throughout and therefore public engagement, dialogue and debate is integral. The opportunity will suit artists seeking to test new ideas in public and who are interested in connecting with others through their work.

Note that this opportunity is for UK-based artists only.

Accommodation Information 

Accommodation in Sheffield will be provided.

Technical Information 

A full range of AV equipment will be available for the artists use.
