Birmingham Open Media is inviting proposals for new Fellows from April 2018 – March 2019.
With access to a Fellows Incubator programme of tailored professional development, paid opportunities and 24 hour access to production and co-working space, this is an invaluable opportunity for creative practitioners working across art, technology and science.
BOM Fellows are outstanding creative practitioners with a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach. They demonstrate clear commitment to social impact and / or outstanding potential for research impact at the intersection of art, technology and science.
BOM Fellows contribute to a thriving collaborative culture through peer-to-peer support and skills sharing within a creative community. As such, they are expected to contribute at least one day a week to being physically based at BOM (or equivalent), and actively contribute to a positive, supportive and inspiring ecology.
In early 2018, BOM will be undergoing a major building refurbishment to upgrade and extend our gallery, café, co-working and studio spaces. We’ll be re-launching as an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation in April 2018, ready to welcome a new cohort of Fellows, and continuing major partnerships including British Council South East Asia and the University of Birmingham.
This is an incredibly exciting time to be working with BOM, and we’re looking for high quality proposals to build on our existing Fellows community and support experimental and impactful new practice.
