A PLACE OF POSSIBILITIES
The Seam - Barnsley's Digital Campus is located around the two DMC buildings in Barnsley town centre. Our plans are to develop the site into an urban village. Allowing us to build on Barnsley's already growing reputation as a place for tech, digital and creative businesses.
We're also the delivery arm of the Tech Welcome Grant. A financial incentive from the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority, to bring the brightest tech businesses into South Yorkshire.
The Seam will be the heart of Barnsley's economy by inspiring entrepreneurs, creating talent pathways, growing our digital business networks and an innovative place to live, work and create.
Following significant growth in the last three years, the Barnsley Digital Media Centre (DMC 01) is kicking off its expansion with the creation of DMC 02. This is the very beginning of a new innovation campus in the town centre.
A place to bring people, business, education and the public sector together to benefit Barnsley.
DMC 01 is where we began. A home for anyone with a digital and creative business idea to start and scale their company and a collaboration space for companies wanting to do more with technology in their own business. DMC 02 has continued this, bringing larger office space, co-working membership and a MakerLab for innovation. We’re powered by Barnsley council, putting people at the centre of our creative world.
The SciTech Digital Innovation Hub from Barnsley College opened in September 2020 and accommodates students studying a range of Digital Industries subjects including broadcast journalism, computing and IT, digital design, digital photography, film and TV and games design.
Facilities within the hub have a special focus on digital industries including cyber security, network technologies, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality alongside software and programming.
