#FactoryTakeover is a new online platform created by the National Sculpture Factory to invite artists in studio on the Factory Floor to take over our Instagram stories each Friday throughout the summer.

These Instagram takeovers are the first part in our new digital online series of artists’ platforms designed to create opportunities for artists to find a voice in these restricted times while giving them a vehicle for multiple forms of engagement and expression.

#FactoryTakeover is the more immediate of these platforms and most direct. It is an invitation to artists to give voice to all issues that are current in their lives at present in their own creative way.
To date we have only offered this opportunity to our Artists in Studio on the Factory Floor and some invited guests but we will look into expanding the range of participants as it develops.
