Future Emerging Art and Technology 

Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) push the boundaries of human knowledge. Unconventional ways of thinking and creativity open novel and visionary fields of research that radically shift.

Our project aims to bring together artists and FET projects using best practice methods to create high-impact collaborative outcomes including the production of new artworks, major exhibitions, media campaigns, and socially engaged events including festivals, debates and participatory workshops.

Six leading international artists will be hosted within FET projects through fully funded embedded residencies. Through in-depth collaborations with researchers and reflecting on the projects, the artists will explore, engage and communicate these new areas of research to reach the widest possible audiences, opening up societal discussions, raising awareness and enhancing take-up of radically new technologies.

Call for artists

Are you are an artist with a keen interest in new technologies and experience in working collaboratively across technological and/or scientific disciplines? Then apply for the FEAT residency programme. Artists from all over the world are welcome to apply.

4th call for projects for the France Channel England Programme

The call is open between Tuesday 13 September and Thursday 10 October 2016

Why participate in the France (Channel) England Programme?

The programme provides funding to project partnerships to support them in gaining the full benefits of working on a cross-border basis. The benefits of working across borders include;

  • Working together to develop one solution to a common problem.
  • Working together to learn from each other’s experiences and expertise, giving organisations a wider area to search for solutions to their problems.
  • Opening up new audiences for ideas and products, and new markets for SMEs to break into using the experience gained from Cross Border working
  • Reducing the costs normally associated with gaining this type of experience and opportunity, meaning it is a great chance for those looking for new opportunities and challenges.
