Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) push the boundaries of human knowledge. Unconventional ways of thinking and creativity open novel and visionary fields of research that radically shift. The project aims to bring together artists and FET projects using best practice methods to create high-impact collaborative outcomes including the production of new artworks, major exhibitions, media campaigns, and socially engaged events including festivals, debates and participatory workshops.
Six leading international artists will be hosted within FET projects through fully funded embedded residencies. Through in-depth collaborations with researchers and reflecting on the projects, the artists will explore, engage and communicate these new areas of research to reach the widest possible audiences, opening up societal discussions, raising awareness and enhancing take-up of radically new technologies.
Whether you are an artist with a keen interest in new technologies and experience in working collaboratively across technological and/or scientific disciplines, or you are working on a FET project and are interested in hosting an artist to gain novel perspectives and increase the visibility of your project results, you can apply for the FEAT residency programme with the deadline of January 31, 2016.
