JERWOOD ARTS / FACT DIGITAL FELLOWSHIP

In partnership with Jerwood Arts, FACT invites emerging artists, curators, technologists, and cultural activists, in particular those from underrepresented backgrounds, to apply for a new paid remote residency and artistic development opportunity this Autumn.

The Jerwood / FACT Fellowship will appoint 3 emerging artists, curators, creative technologists, critical thinkers, or cultural activists, from any background, to support their potential as producers of the future. FACT’s current and future programme has intersectionality at its heart, and so we particularly invite proposals which take a similar approach, and which see the unique, transformative power that technology can provide within this discourse.
Residencies will be mostly digital, with outcomes presented online and/or at FACT in early 2021. We invite candidates to experiment with, and extend what is possible through, online arts programming, but there are also opportunities to travel to and stay in Liverpool if it suits the successful candidate's way of working and proposal development. Each Fellow will receive a fee and production budget, as well as travel, accommodation and per diems for the final presentations, as well as any other agreed upon visits. Alongside this there will be professional mentoring from the FACT team and our network of collaborators, to assist in the development of not only your idea but also your practice.
Fellows will be encouraged to experiment with different online platforms, as well as test out elements of their research with the public or invited audiences in January and February 2021. In addition, we will invite all Fellows to participate in FACT’s Transformer Summit 2021, a gathering of leading artists and thinkers to help shape the questions examined in our wider future programme.
