About this Event

During 2020, Wysing Arts Centre will put broadcasting at the centre of its artistic programme; to connect with remote audiences in a way that enables us to listen, as well as to transmit, ideas using digital and other technologies.

Through exhibitions, events, residencies, retreats and our annual music festival, we will work with a range of artists and contributors across the year to explore how broadcast technologies, in particular radio, can enable the communication of ideas and create dialogue and understanding.

Building on the work of our recent programmes, we will focus on connecting a network of ‘many voices’ made up of those often left out of the conversation, whether due to access requirements, location outside of metropolitan centres, or discrimination due to race, gender and/or sexuality. We will be looking to both amplify voices and enable supportive networks and connections to be made.

Our gallery will become an expanded studio space where ideas are explored, including through exhibitions, commissioned and archival art works, recorded events with live audiences, new collaborations, and through works that are made specifically to be broadcast from Wysing.

It is within this context that we invite expressions of interest from artists to be in-Residence at Wysing during 2020. We are open to when residencies take place so please tell us what would work best for you, and how much funding you will need. We expect to fund most residencies between £1,000-£5,000, to include fees, travel and production.
