Future Screens NI – Rewriting the Narrative Funding Call

In response to the impact of Covid-19 on the creative industries Future Screens NI and Northern Ireland Screen are partnering to deliver the Rewriting the Narrative Open Call.


Rewriting the Narrative is an open call to the Northern Ireland creative industries challenging them to explore where and how these changes are happening in the creative industries. More importantly the call is aimed at identifying how can we learn from the current situation, both positives and negatives, and use it to strengthen the industry once normality returns. The call focuses upon 5 core themes:

·     Creativity

·     Community

·     Environment

·     Work/Life Balance

·     Education

Rewriting the Narrative will fund up to 20 projects with a £5,000 grant each to carry research and development into the 5 themes outlined above. The call is open to individuals/freelancers and companies from Northern Ireland’s creative industries. What form the projects take is open to the applicants; a digital platform, a short film or animation, evidence based recommendations for change etc. anything that tackles the challenges we face today as a society to improve it for the better.

Applicants will be paired with an academic from Ulster University or Queen’s University Belfast who will provide appropriate research support. This support should not be costed in the application.

To apply please fill out the application form and monitoring form.  Please return it by email it to n.toman@ulster.ac.uk  by 5pm on Friday 8th of May
