Let’s Get Phygital: Blended Participation Callout 2022
Calling artists interested in exploring how social engagement can happen simultaneously in blended physical and digital spaces.
Are you an artist interested in testing new approaches to working with people and technology? Are you looking to address digital poverty, online exclusion, AI racism, or any other topics that relate to accessibility, social equity and digital spaces? Maybe you want to think outside the box about how to use digital devices to facilitate collaboration in group settings?
Axis is offering 5 artists £1000 each to explore new ways of collaborative art making in a blended online and in person way. This can be an event, a workshop, a DIY making space, a community intervention, or any other idea that invites people to engage in art and technology in an accessible and meaningful way to understand: What are new ways of working together that combine the best of being in person and online? Moving into a post-pandemic future we want to help artists think of innovative ways of working that use some of the digital tools we have become accustomed to and increased accessibility for those homebound, with the need to reconnect in person and create live participatory work. How can we address both these aspects creatively?
Deadline: 22 May 2022
