SWCTN Data Prototype Funding Call

The South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) is looking to fund ideas for prototypes in the field of Data that are brave and distinctive, that open up the field to new voices and challenge the status quo.

SWCTN anticipate awarding grants of between £10k and £40k, and would encourage applications of all sizes between these limits. Prototyping will run from Dec 2020 for three months with a SWCTN Data Showcase between March – June 2021. Prototype teams are expected to commit to the programme during this period.

We aim to be as inclusive as possible and will work to accommodate all access requirements. We will discuss your needs and tailor how we do things to support you as best we can.

If writing is not your thing, alternative forms of application are welcome. Please get in touch with melissa.b@watershed.co.uk to talk about your options.

People of all ages, backgrounds and disciplines are welcome to apply. Applications from BAME, LGBTQI, Deaf and disabled candidates are strongly encouraged as they are currently under-represented in the creative technology sector.

Visit the SWCTN website to find out more and complete the application form.
