We are excited to share the news that we have appointed London based OEB Architects to lead an ambitious refurbishment of our site. 

Of their appointment, OEB Architects said “OEB are very excited to be working with Wysing on its next phase of works, with an approach of focused alterations and additions that help to improve the access, usability and sustainability of the site.  We aim to balance the need for adaptable and undetermined spaces with legibility and connection between the different elements, making the most of the character of what already exists."

Initial plans include a pavilion that will form a focal point for visitors alongside a reconfiguration of spaces to increase natural light and allow for more flexibility of use. 

Wysing Capital Plans

As part of their approach, OEB Architects will spend a short time in-residence at Wysing, in much the same way that artists spend time within the organisation, developing their initial ideas into fully worked up plans. 

We need to raise a minimum of £500,000 to deliver our plans. To find out how you can get involved, please contact Wysing Director, Donna Lynas on donna.lynas@wysingartscentre.org

Wysing Friends

Join the The Wysing Producer's Circle - a forward-thinking group of individuals who support new artistic work to be created at Wysing. Much of this work is experimental in nature and often falls between artistic disciplines which can make it difficult to fund through traditional routes. Producer's Circle Members recognise this and want to make a real impact through direct donations to one of the only residency and production-focussed arts centres in the UK.  

To be part of this supportive group of patrons, we ask for a minimum annual donation of £1,000. Upon joining, as a thank you, you will receive a uniquely commissioned Wysing Producer's Circle edition and be invited to an annual artist-designed Producer's Circle Dinner, in addition to receiving invitations to previews, screenings, talks, and exclusive events. 

Wysing Producer’s Circle

"Wysing has established a brave and imaginative emphasis on experimentation and critical discussion in which the Wysing community, and the broader community, are given every opportunity to participate. Wysing offers the practical support of space, time and resources for artists to engage with the more challenging aspects of their creative activities and to bring these to fruition, and the organisation enables both artists and audiences to be rewarded with diverse, stimulating and enlightening encounters: both artists and audiences can collaborate in mutually questioning what art is, who it is for and where it can be seen beyond the commercial precedents of today’s art world. ”  — Phyllida Barlow, CBE 

Current members of the Producer's Circle are: 

Jenny Brooks, Terry Brooks, Margaret & Hank Erbe, Jo Marsh, Elizabeth Price, Yinka Shonibare CBE, Helen & Page Starr, Victoria Thomas & Darryl de Prez
