SYLLABUS V OPEN CALL
INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS
DEADLINE: MONDAY 13 MAY
Wysing Arts Centre, Eastside Projects, Iniva, The NewBridge Project, S1 Artspace and Spike Island invite applications from artists for Syllabus V: a collaboratively produced alternative learning programme in its fifth year that will support ten artists across ten months.
Starting in September 2019, the curriculum for Syllabus V will be built around a series of seven intensive gatherings, which the ten selected artists, curators, partner organisations and two external Artistic Advisors will collaboratively develop. Syllabus V participating artists will bring forward ideas to the programme and actively contribute to its design and delivery across the ten months.
Artists will benefit from:
• The opportunity to collaboratively shape and develop a reflexive learning experience.
• The opportunity to develop supportive national networks of artists, curators and organisations.
• An intensive programme of gatherings at partner venues that offer time to come together to discuss ideas, work and approaches to practice.
• Introductions to, and connections with arts organisations, communities and networks in cities across the UK.
• Two focused 1-to-1 hour-long visits with the Artistic Advisors over the course of the year.
Previous iterations of Syllabus have involved contributions from a wide range of artists, writers and curators and applicants to Syllabus V will have the opportunity to access similar networks. Contributing practitioners have included Larry Achiampong, Barby Asante, Ruth Beale, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Celine Condorelli, Nav Haq, Nadia Hebson, Anthea Hamilton, Andy Holden, Evan Ifekoya, Shama Khanna, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Mark Leckey, Richard Long, Sofia Niazi, Katrina Palmer, Holly Pester, Rory Pilgrim, Morgan Quaintance, Tai Shani, Rosalie Schweiker, Cally Spooner, Richard Wentworth, Jonathan P. Watts, Keith Wilson, DM Withers, Rehana Zaman and Andrea Luka Zimmermann.
Syllabus V 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.
