Apply for an Artist Takeover at Factory!

Aviva Studios’ vast spaces have been designed to provoke artists to do things differently, explore what’s possible and offer a backdrop to create some of the most ambitious work in the world.

In September 2024, we will hand over the keys to our South Warehouse space to artists with a creative team or collectives of artists who want to experiment, play and explore working at an epic scale that is not possible elsewhere. We’re looking for a cohort of artists from a range of interdisciplinary backgrounds to exchange ideas, experiment, interrogate, play and think big!

We’ll support artists from any discipline from the North of England with a minimum of five years of professional practice to experiment in our space for four days (4 – 8 September). We will support the development of your ideas in the weeks leading up to the takeover with our specialist team of producers, engagement and technical staff, offering a budget of £10,000 to support your development time, R&D and production costs. You can apply as an individual with a creative team or as a collective of artists. There’s no pressure to create a public outcome. Instead, the priority is to develop your skills and create space to play and imagine.
