British Council / Wysing Arts Centre / Digital Arts Studios > Net//Work Digital Arts Residencies (UK)

The British Council, in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre and Digital Arts Studios, is looking for mid-career artists and creative practitioners to participate in Net//Work residencies.

The Net//Work residencies offer space for reflection, research, practice, skills exchange, and professional networking opportunities focused on digital artistic practices and technologies. There will be two residency sessions: 1-26 June 2020 at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridgeshire, and 7 September – 2 October 2020 at Digital Arts Studios, Belfast.

Each 4-week residency is open to mid-career visual artists and creative practitioners based in, or from, the UK, Egypt, Jordan, Syria or Uganda whose practices engage with digital technologies (work that is made or presented using digital technology). The residencies will consist of site visits, independent studio time, group critique, peer-to-peer mentoring and workshops.

At the end of each residency, participating artists will be invited to submit a funding proposal for the creation and/or research and development proposal of an independent and/or collaborative digital work.

The organisers are looking for a diverse range of artists and creative practitioners. Net//Work is a fully accessible programme, and we encourage disabled and/or D/deaf artists and creative practitioners to apply. Access provision and costs will be met in addition to fees.

The selected artist will receive a grant of £1000. Travel, accommodation, access and subsistence costs will be covered on top of this amount.

Deadline: 24 February 2020
