Digital Innovation East Midlands
Call For Proposals
Deadline Extended to Friday 21st January 2011

Four £4K Digital Research Commissions
Broadway in Nottingham are pleased to announce that we are accepting proposals for a unique opportunity of four Digital Research Commissions. We are seeking proposals in the areas of digital culture and emerging artistic practices that engage technology. This innovation project is open to submissions from artists, designers and organisations based in the East Midlands region.


We’re looking for innovative proposals for new work that reflects the current concerns for practitioners working in this area. We are keen to develop new work focused around emerging hybrid practice in digital culture and media arts. The project has been funded by Arts Council England, as part of wider investment in digital development to explore how digital media technologies are affecting the creation, distribution and consumption of the arts.

Broadway has invited associate thinkers, who are highly regarded in this field to each develop a speculative text about the possibilities for four distinct areas of current practice. Including Professor Mike Stubbs, Director, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), Drew Hemment, Director of Future Everything Festival & Associate Director of Imagination Lancaster, Clare Reddington, Director, iShed and The Pervasive Media Studio and Michael Connor, New York based Writer and New Media Curator. Applicants are encouraged to write their proposals in response to, but not limited to the below areas of focus:

  • Co creation / Online Space
  • Pervasive Gaming / Urban Screens
  • Re-imaging Redundant Systems
  • Live Cinema / 3D

Please read the guidelines for more information.

The programme will take place across the East Midlands from February- June 2011. Running alongside the commissioned projects will be a support programme, which will include Digital Forums, Mentoring and Workshops.

The call for proposals is open to emerging or established practitioners working in any of the creative industries, including (but not exclusively) new media, technology, film/video, the arts (music, literature, dance, drama, visual arts etc) and design (graphic, 3D, architecture, fashion, interaction).

Your proposal should demonstrate a clear interest in and commitment to delivering a research project which demonstrates new thinking about digital innovation.
We welcome applications from individuals, collaborators, groups and organisations from all sectors of the community. The lead practitioner must be based in the East Midlands region.

The Deadline for Submissions is 5PM, Friday 21st January 2011
