Online Emerging Artist Residency with FACT Liverpool

In the aftermath of a global pandemic, we are more aware of how technology has changed how we think about ourselves, the people around us, and the places we call home. History, geography, biology and culture all form part of our ancestral story but how does technology help us to explore new ways of thinking and experimenting with who we are? This programme aims to change previous narratives and move towards a more inclusive understanding of what it means to belong.

  • FACT Together is a 3-month online artist residency
  • Open to all early-career artists in the North of England
  • Four artists will each receive a fee of £2500, a production budget of £1500 plus 3 months of mentorship and support
  • Artists will create work that will be presented online from November 2021
  • All forms of online artwork are encouraged including audio, video, text, games, apps, virtual or augmented reality, performance, animation and social media.
  • No previous experience of making digital work is necessary

Artists must respond to the theme Radical Ancestry, which focuses on ideas of belonging, how our biological and cultural heritage shapes our identities, and how we understand and construct who we are.

Submit your application online here.

Deadline: Apply by midnight, Sunday 1 August.

If you need any further support with the application process, please email [email protected] with the subject line 'FACT Together 2021'.
