British Council in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridgeshire, and Digital Arts Studios, Belfast is pleased to announce the second round of Net//Work Online Digital Arts Residencies. Together they will select mid-career visual artists who work creatively with digital technologies to participate in online residencies for four weeks from 25 October – 19 November 2021.
Net//Work offers time for reflection, research, practice, skills exchange, and professional networking opportunities focused on digital artistic practices and technologies.
Each online 4-week residency is open to mid-career visual artists based in South Africa, Nigeria, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Indonesia, Pakistan, or Malaysia who work creatively with digital technologies (work that is made or presented using digital technology).
The residencies will consist of online mentoring with Wysing and DAS staff, group conversations, problem solving surgeries, guest talks and workshops with external curators and artists and 1:1 tuition. Following the residency, artists will have the opportunity to participate in an online exhibition hosted by each residency partner.
The organisers are looking for a diverse range of mid-career visual artists. Net//Work aims to be a fully accessible programme, and encourages disabled and/or D/deaf visual artists to apply. Access provision and costs will be met in addition to the artist fee, subsistence, and production costs.
- Artist Fee: £1000 + subsistence and production costs.
- Financial support of up to £1000 will be provided for reasonable adjustment requirements.
