‘Phygital’ Project Commission Callout
Westgate Street Community Takeover Street Party
Calling Gloucester-based creatives interested in exploring how social engagement can happen simultaneously in blended physical and digital spaces.
This can be an event, a workshop, a DIY making space, a community intervention, or any other idea that invites people to engage in art and technology in an accessible and meaningful way that demonstrates there are new ways of working together that combine the best of being in-person and online. Moving into a post-pandemic future we want to think of innovative ways of working that use some of the digital tools we have become accustomed to and increased accessibility for those homebound, with the need to reconnect in person and create live participatory work. How can we address both these aspects creatively?
How to Apply
Applications are welcome from creative practitioners interested in blurring the line between working with participants in real life and online, and with experience working collaboratively with community members and non-artists. For accessibility, applications are accepted in a range of formats including audio recording, video and writing.
Applications should include:
Links to a portfolio, social media and/or artist website
Information about your proposed idea about how you would approach a blended participatory process?
Who do you intend to work with and how?
What technology do you expect to use?
Closing date: Sunday 17th July 2022 midnight
