Invisible Flock Barnsley Artist Residency – 2024

Residency application deadline Friday 24th May - Details available HERE

The residency is designed for artistic development, providing space, facilities and support to two artists or one collective in the local Barnsley area at the Invisible Flock studio at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. 

It is an opportunity for an artist or collective to work alongside Invisible Flock for 10 days in August 2024, grouped or spaced in response to the needs/specifics of practice in agreement with both parties and the work you hope to do.

This residency is specifically designed for artists wanting to access the equipment and facilities in the studio space to develop their practice. Invisible Flock invite you to bring ideas at an early stage of development that involves a new or innovative use of the facilities and technology this space presents.

The studio at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park also comes fully equipped with a fabricating workshop with a large scale CNC machine, a fully equipped electronics lab, plus a large open space with a rig to create, test and iterate with sound and AV at scale. In terms of equipment, there is extensive sound recording tools, LiDAR and Faro scanners, a laser cutter, 3D printer, a small kiln, a full host of lab equipment, a wide variety of computing options and access to licences for software such as Touch Designer, Reality Capture and Faro Scene.
