Alt-w Fund | Cycle 13 - New Media Scotland - Edinburgh

DEADLINE for applications is 6pm on 30th May 2019.Initiated in Dundee by Scottish Screen, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.Cycle 13 of the fund will commission and curate work for presentation on the 4.5m high LED screen that welcomes every visitor to the refurbished Music Hall in Aberdeen. Production awards of up to £7,500 are available for new work.Our curatorial focus is two-fold, long-form generative work that's infinite and algorithmic in nature, or short-form looping animation. Both should be silent and have immediacy for presentation in a transient space with a limited dwell time.This opportunity is for both new or existing work. Lead applicants for a new commission should be based in Scotland but can collaborate with anyone from anywhere. Applications for existing work can be from the UK and EU."Best grants ever. Alt-w alumni must be the best supported artists in the business. The benefits for us of winning one of these extended way beyond just the funding."New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund receives investment from Aberdeen Performing Arts and Creative Scotland.Click here for more information - http://www.mediascot.org/alt-w
