Artist Information:  

  • This residency is for artists aged between 18–25 years.
  • We are keen to support artists who have not previously had access to similar opportunities.
  • Artists who want to test and share their ideas with others.
  • Artists looking for inspiration to create new work.
  • We will be looking to develop a group working across a range of creative practice with an emphasis on digital media and games.
  • Artists will be expected to attend all the group sessions. 


AMPlify aims to support artists with a range of practices and artistic approaches, and who bring a diversity of cultural, social, racial and gender perspectives. We are particularly keen to support applicants who have not yet had access to similar programmes and artists with Black, Asian or minority ethnic heritage, those who have faced socio-economic barriers, those living in rural Cambridgeshire and Fenland, those who identify as LGBTQ+ or have disabilities. We believe that a diverse cohort of artists makes a strong cohort and will use this information to ensure that a diverse range of artists are interviewed for this opportunity. We also want to ensure that we can support all of the artists on the programme and we ask applicants to make this clear when applying, if applicable.
