Commissioning programme for Syrian refugee artists
A new digital commissioning programme to support displaced Syrian artists has been launched by The Space and the British Council.
The Andو programme aims to support artists whose work raises awareness of the problems facing communities affected by the conflict in Syria and the surrounding regions.
As part of The Space’s remit to champion digital arts around the world, Andو will draw on the British Council’s global cultural education programme to give a voice to artists who might otherwise struggle to produce work at this time.
Successful applicants will be commissioned, receive digital skills training and have access to a network of fellow artists to help support their projects, as well as having their finished work featured on www.thespace.org.
