Bringing digital arts innovations to St Helens – Artist Brief

| Anna Eaton

Ideas Alliances are working with St Helens Libraries to deliver an action research project that is investigating ‘What does a digital offer look like for St Helens?’.

As part of this piece of work, we want to commission a creative digital arts project – inviting innovative ideas for how our increasingly digital society might affect the people of St Helens Borough. This call is aimed at artists or groups whose practices play with the ways digital and physical can interact, and who want to experiment with the spaces formed by this creative use of technology. 

The total budget is £4000.00 and the deadline for application is 12pm/Midday on 30th October 2020.
