Open Call for our 2017 Residencies

New Talent Residencies

We have three New Talent Residencies available and are looking for ambitious practitioners with ideas for creative technology projects. You could be just starting out, changing career direction, or looking to return from a career break. With space to work within the Pervasive Media Studio, a community of peers, a project bursary, and support to make, test and discuss your work, we can help you get your idea off the ground.

Practitioners will be based at Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio. You will become part of our community of over 150 artists, creative companies, engineers, academics, scientists, technologists and tinkerers, who work on new and emerging ideas. Ideas span gaming, projections, location-based media, city intervention, connected objects, tangible interfaces, space exploration and new forms of performance. Some are cultural, some are commercial. Run in partnership with the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol, the Studio has a great workspace, an open ethos and a can-do attitude.

Applicants must live and work in the United Kingdom.

We welcome applications from BAME, LGBTQI and Deaf and disabled practitioners, because they are under represented in our programme.

We are open for applications now. If you have any questions or would like to chat about any aspect of your proposal or the application process, please drop victoria@watershed.co.uk a line. We look forward to hearing from you.

Closing Date: Monday, 18 September, 2017 - 10:00
