Objects Sandbox Ideas Labs ⁄⁄

Save the date now for these October events

REACTs next funding area is Objects Sandbox. New technologies embedded in real things can allow objects themselves to tell us their stories and start conversations outside of performance, page or screen. This sandbox will bring the skills of artists, makers and researchers to explore the look, feel and potential of this new area of work, often referred to as the Internet of Things. Successful projects will involve physical objects that communicate using networked technologies but the output could range from buildings to clothing, craft to games.

The Ideas Lab will be an integral part of the bidding process for Objects Sandbox. If interested in this call you should plan to attend one of the below events. The day will give you an opportunity to learn more about the scheme, share and refine your idea, get inspired and meet potential collaborators. You do not need to have an idea or partner in place already to attend.

We will be publishing full briefing documents over the summer when you will be able to book your place at one of these events. The deadline for written applications will be in December and the projects will run from March to May next year.
