The Space WIRED Creative Fellowship is on the hunt for talented individuals who are leading the way in digital arts and culture.
In an exciting new category within the WIRED Innovation Fellowships, The Space and WIRED are looking to support innovation and will be funding three Creative Fellows to produce a new digital artwork that has the potential to have an impact on the world, politically, socially, technologically, artistically.
The winners will each receive a £30,000 prize plus training and exposure. The Creative Fellow will produce an artwork that we won’t have imagined before, something that makes us think differently.
This is an international opportunity so we are open to applications from anyone, in any industry, whether that’s fine art, game design, community theatre, protest, social media, new technology or any other area of digital culture. Regardless of your training, background or location in the world, we want to hear from you.
The three Creative Fellows will have a proven interest in art and technology, and the successful proposals will:
– be original
– be inspiring
– have the potential to have an impact politically, socially or artistically, in the realm of digital culture
You need no formal qualifications to apply. Applications are welcomed from anywhere in the world. All you need is a passion for your work and an idea for a piece of digital art/culture.
The Fellows’ new work will be shown on The Space and WIRED UK online, they will also receive training and mentoring in addition to the full benefits of being a WIRED Innovation Fellow.
The three winning applications will be announced in Spring 2015 and the artworks will be revealed to the public at WIRED2015 in October. The Fellows retain all ownership of their work.
Application deadline is Midnight GMT 1 March 2015.
