SIX began as a project to encourage experimentation and create space for artists to develop work. To this end we have space in the SIX house in Sheffield, South Yorkshire for people to stay and spend up to a month of intense investigation, our only requirement is that you share something from your time with the SIX community.
We are not cash rich but do have a wide variety of contacts, a good library of art books, wifi, and can organise exhibition/performance space if required. We are looking for detailed proposals outlining what you wish to explore and how the space might help you achieve that.
Comments from previous residencies…
“SIX Project Space has been highly beneficial to my own practice over the past 8 months. Not only has it provided a forum for constructive feedback of my work and ideas but it has also enabled me to develop a more empirical approach to my practice.” Bevis Fenner
“Mark, Sarah and Theresa are a wonderful team. The space they have created, Six, is an exciting project space which was offered to me with free reign to experiment with ideas I had only dabbled with before.” Rebecca Kunzi
