SCAF receives funding from ACE

Sheffield Contemporary Art forum has recently received Arts Council of England funding to support and prepare for a range of activity over the next year or so.

We are developing our website, giving it an overall revamp and incorporating new interactive features to help people engage with contemporary art in the city. For example, this new site is being launched with new podcasts featuring artist interviews; Pil and Galia Kollectiv talk about their recent work Svetlana at S1 Artspace and Sheffield based Steve Hawley presents his new work Not to Scale at Bloc Space. Over the next few months, there will be new podcasts and artist interviews added to the site, so we recommend visiting often for updates.

Alongside developing its online listings, SCAF is planning to launch a new art map for the city, which will be circulated around the city and beyond at the beginning of December.

SCAF will also be commissioning new work by artists living and working in the city, through a new Sheffield Pavilion project. This aims to take Sheffield based artists to international audiences, in the form of a showreel of artists’ film and video launched at the 11th International Istanbul Biennial.

And finally, we will be working towards another Art Sheffield city-wide event, taking place across various venues in Sheffield and pencilled in for early 2010.

Keep up to date  with these developments and art in the city by joining our mailing list. Watch this space! It’s going to be an exciting year ahead.
