For the past ten years Wysing Arts Centre has operated a range of programmes, from the practical to the discursive, that offer opportunities for personal creative development, and artistic enquiry. Integral to Wysing’s ethos has been the provision of space, support and finance to enable artists to experiment, undertake research, and make new work, alongside a public events programme. In 2016 we will bring all of these programmes within one over-arching conceptual theme, Wysing Poly.

Wysing Poly will provide an environment within which practice and theory come together to support the development of new work and new collaborations. Across 2016 we will offer artists’ residencies, artist-led study weeks and study days, a Summercamp comprising of seminars and events devised in collaboration with artists and writers, alongside practical courses, and workshops for young people developed by our Circuit group.

Wysing Poly will take an open and pluralistic approach, and intrinsic to it will be the contribution of individuals from outside the arts through a public talks and events programme that will expand thinking and bring new tangents and ideas to the centre.

Wysing is launching the Poly with two Open Calls for artists’ residencies and studios. Please click on the links for more information
