Byzantia Harlow; Autumn Artists’ Residency 2015
Founded in 2013, PSC is a Community Interest Company (CIC) dedicated to promoting critical engagement and innovation in the field of three-dimensional creative practice. Over the years we have piloted various aspects of this vision through short-term initiatives. This has earned PSC a a reputation for being both rigorous and innovative, combining grassroots activism with commercial activity to support its not-for-profit ambitions. Collaboration is integral to a culture of sharing and caring. Our multifarious activities web together a rich and diverse network of individuals and organisations that share our commitment to making cultural production more sustainable, accessible, diverse and engaged.PSC is committed to providing essential opportunities, practical support and facilities for practitioners to enable the development of sculpture in the UK and beyond. Central to our ethos is that artists should be able to further their practice without the constraint caused by a lack of access to equipment, facilities and expertise.
PSC aspires to be an international centre for distinction in sculpture, a context where creativity can flourish and which supports artists and arts organisations alike, meeting the diverse needs of both domestic and overseas practitioners and other sculpture enthusiasts, including curators, collectors and commissioners.
*PSC’s studio and work space facility is currently closed. We have a new space in development and will announce further details on this in due course, via our mailing list.

“I am delighted to support Pangaea in their mission, which aligns with Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s longstanding commitment to working with artists at all stages of their practice. Especially in the formative years after graduation, artists need help navigating the ‘business’ whilst preserving the essential head-space and working environment that this kind of work requires. There is a great deal involved in effectively documenting, archiving, presenting and circulating artworks and it can be challenging to get the right technical and practical advice on how to make, store and install sculpture. By prioritising these things, we hope to offer a nurturing platform that gives artists the confidence to grow not only into the next stages of their development but into a long and exciting vision ahead. This is why the work of Pangaea is absolutely essential and this resource will make a significant contribution to the future history of sculpture in the UK and beyond.”
