At the core of our values is the commitment to support growth in creative practice and to support artists, arts organisations and practitioners to thrive, develop & hone their craft and in doing so enrich Barnsley with their work.

We demonstrate our commitment in a number of ways including our residency programme, regular scratch evenings, opportunities for local visual artists to exhibit and sell their work and participation in a number of regional and national networks that support work to tour.

Routes In: A Guide to Getting New Work Programmed in the North of England (PDF, 3.41 MB)

This comprehensive guide includes advice for artists setting out to get their work programmed as well as a directory of Northern venues who programme new work. The guide was published by Venues North, a network brought together and chaired by ARC’s Chief Executive, Annabel Turpin.
