Yorkshire Graduate Award 2023

Posted in Opportunities

In 2018 Yorkshire Sculpture Park launched the Yorkshire Graduate Award. Building on this residency programme, YSP is offering another placement for a recently graduated BA or MA artist, from any Yorkshire-based university, to work and stay on-site for two weeks. The residency can take place at a mutually convenient time between autumn 2023 and spring 2024 and they can be flexible with how the residency is scheduled, for example splitting the time into two separate weeks.

This Award is for anyone graduating from a Yorkshire university in 2023, and comprises:

  • A residency for up to two weeks at YSP
  • Access to our facilities including metal and wood workshops
  • Fee of £750
  • Up to £250 for materials
  • On-site accommodation at YSP
  • Return travel in the UK up to £150
  • Food and hospitality
  • Support from YSP’s Curatorial team
  • Half-day support for YSP’s Technical team
  • The opportunity for a public facing element, for example an event or open studio, which would be supported by presence on YSP’s social media and website.

If this is of interest, please submit a PDF document of no more than 5 pages including a short statement on your current practice, any information about your final degree work, images of your work and a simple outline of your plans if you were to be offered the residency. This plan does not have to be definitive and can change during the course of the residency. YSP accept the written elements of the application as audio recordings, videos or voice notes of up to 5 minutes. YSP welcomes applications from all artistic disciplines.

Applications should be submitted to curators@ysp.org.uk.

Application deadline: Noon, Friday 21st July
