The Syllabus is a collaboratively produced alternative learning programme which aims to reach artists with a range of practices and artistic approaches and bring together individuals from a wide geographic spread across the UK. It is delivered through a partnership between Wysing Arts Centre, Eastside Projects, Iniva, The NewBridge Project, S1 Artspace and Spike Island.
Launched in 2015 each Syllabus supports ten artists across ten months with a programme centred around a series of intensive gatherings which are delivered by artists, curators, writers and other practitioners and hosted by each of the partner venues.The Syllabus is selected through an Open Call.
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.
