In partnership with Jerwood Arts, FACT is pleased to invite emerging artists, curators, technologists, and cultural activists, in particular those from underrepresented backgrounds, to apply for 1 of 3 paid hybrid residency opportunities in 2022.
Application Deadline: Wednesday 5 January 2022, midnight BST
FACT is committed to supporting the next generation of creative talent and highlighting a broad range of perspectives on digital culture. Now in its second year, the Jerwood Arts / FACT Fellowship will bring 3 more distinct creative voices into the organisation to focus on their practice and professional development. Applications should be from UK-based artists and should broadly respond to our Radical Ancestry programme, which focuses on understandings of ‘belonging’.
Residencies will be hybrid (a mixture of in-person stays in Liverpool and online), and will focus on the development of a new piece of work or research interest, with outcomes presented at FACT in Summer / Autumn 2022. Residency outcomes can either be works-in-progress or final versions of the work and can take the form of installations, events, or a range of other outputs. We invite candidates to experiment within our programme and their own practices, using this opportunity to make connections in Liverpool, exchange with other resident artists, interact with our audiences, and test out ideas and approaches.
Each fellow will receive:
£3,000 production budget
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 for a work, but also your practice.
