FutureEverything is delighted to announce the opening of the application period for FAULT LINES, a landmark talent development and commissioning programme supported by Arts Council England through its Ambition for Excellence scheme.
FAULT LINES will support the creation of new works by artists and practitioners which contribute to the dialogue between technology, innovation, culture and society. The programme will encourage work across artforms and sectors, exploring specifically how artists can have an impact on innovation in the technology sector.
This exciting opportunity offers up to 5 different artists support for a period of 2 yearsin the development of their careers, and includes a number of opportunities to commission new artistic works as part of major innovation projects, such as CityVerve, the UK’s Internet of Things demonstrator, as arranged by FutureEverything.
The final goal of the programme is to develop new forms of sustainability for the creative practice of digital artists working today, encouraging cross sector collaboration and providing resources for art from beyond the arts. FAULT LINES will reimagine the studio for the 21st century new media art generation. . .
Who can apply?
We are looking for creators actively crossing the boundaries between art, design, science and innovation. Artists who, through their work, are opening up new dimensions and forging new visions of the role of technology in the future of society. They must be enthusiastic about cross disciplinary research and interested in developing their practice, working hand in hand with practitioners from other fields.
We are looking for a diverse group of artists at different stages of their career, with practises spanning art forms and medium. . . .
