Call For Proposals

Digital Innovation East Midlands

Four £4K Digital Research Commissions

Broadway in Nottingham are pleased to announce that we are accepting proposals for a unique opportunity of four Digital Research Commissions. We are seeking proposals in the areas of digital culture and emerging artistic practices that engage technology. This innovation project is open to submissions from artists, designers and organisations based in the East Midlands region.

WHAT

We’re looking for innovative proposals for new work that reflects the current concerns for practitioners working in this area. We are keen to develop new work focused around emerging hybrid practice in digital culture and media arts. The project has been funded by Arts Council England, as part of wider investment in digital development to explore how digital media technologies are affecting the creation, distribution and consumption of the arts.

Broadway has invited associate thinkers, who are highly regarded in this field to each develop a speculative text about the possibilities for four distinct areas of current practice.

Applicants are encouraged to write their proposals in response to, but not limited to the below areas of focus:

* Co creation / Online Space

* Pervasive Gaming / Urban Screens

* Re-imaging Redundant Systems

* Live Cinema / 3D

The programme will take place across the East Midlands from February- June 2011. Running alongside the commissioned projects will be a support programme, which will include Digital Forums, Mentoring and Workshops.
