Current Opportunities

Yorkshire Graduate Award 2021
For over forty years, residencies have been at the heart of YSP, offering opportunities for early career and emerging artists to reflect and move forward with their practice.

In 2018 we launched the Yorkshire Graduate Award. Building on this successful 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 from summer/autumn 2021 onwards.

This Award is for anyone graduating from a Yorkshire university in 2021, and comprises: a residency for up to four weeks at the Park, onsite accommodation, access to our facilities including metal and wood workshops, studio space and half a day with our Technical team. The awardee will receive £500 to develop new ideas and/or for materials, and will receive a critique from YSP’s Curatorial team. There is also the opportunity for a public facing element – once restrictions allow – for example, an event or open studio, which would be supported by presence on YSP’s social media and website. 

As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease slowly throughout the year, YSP will be flexible in setting the dates for the residency, including exploring dates in 2022, or digitally if preferred.
