Online Digital Arts Programme
Connecting Digital And New Media Artists in Cumbria
As part of Signal Film and Media’s Cumbrian Artists’ Digital Development Opportunities during Lockdown, the initiative aims to provide a platform for artists who want to reach out, discuss, network and engage – with each other and the subject of COVID-19, but also to look at the ways artists and creatives living in Cumbria can expand their own practice.
Signal are working in partnership with organisations across Cumbria, including with the Cumbria Museum Consortium, and together the partnership hopes to create greater impact and networking across Cumbria’s emerging artists and existing cultural venues.
The programme includes virtual micro-commissions, live online talks and workshops led by artists and organisations. The talks are designed to address issues that are relevant for artists across Cumbria who are interested in exploring digital and expanding their practice.

THE NEW ETIQUETTE:
MICRO-COMMISSION ARTIST BRIEF
During this extraordinary time how do we now behave? What have we observed as artists? How can we use this in our practice and how can we move forward?
Alongside the talks Signal would like to work with artists on 2 Online Micro-Commissions titled ‘The New Etiquette’.
During lockdown and the new normal of social distancing, being online and having a virtual space as an artist and as audiences has never been more necessary. We would like artists to respond to this theme within their proposal.
Applications and interest is always actively encouraged from all artists working within Cumbria, from all backgrounds and ethnicity. However, in this instance, at least one of the commissions will be awarded to a person of BIPOC.
Fee £400 per artist.
Application Deadline: 24th August at Midnight
