Grants of up to £25,000 are available for partnerships that use the arts within new and emerging technologies

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland, in collaboration with Future Screens NI, has opened a new funding programme to help develop partnerships that will use the arts within new and emerging digital, immersive technologies.

The programme aims to assist arts organisations, entrepreneurs, and creative businesses to undertake projects that contribute to the growth of the creative industries and unlock future income generation.

Eligible applications must be partnerships between an arts organisation or artist and a creative business or academia. Proposals must use new and emerging technology to:

  • advance artistic practice to enhance the experience of arts audiences
  • create new digital artistic products
  • allow for digital distribution of existing arts products or services

The fund is open for online applications until 12 noon on Monday 28 February 2022.

To support prospective applicants to the programme, the Arts Council and Future Screens NI will host an online webinar on Tuesday 25 January 2022, to enable applicants to explore their ideas with industry experts. Register in advance to attend the webinar.
