Supporting Artists

Barnsley has a dynamic and thriving culture and creativity sector, bringing huge benefits to the borough. There are many opportunities to grow this sector and for organisations, practitioners, and artists to create successful partnerships and connections.

The sharing of information is an important part of this growth and we will be offering details around the following topics as a way to support artists working in the borough;

  • Funding
  • CPD
  • Commissioning public art
  • Culture strategy
  • Our partners
  • NPO's in Barnsley 

Barnsley Museums and Heritage Trust secured funding of £35,000 to commission a series of stunning art installations across Barnsley Museums locations.

The artworks were made possible through a programme lead by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) dedicated to supporting local culture and its creative industries in the region.
