ArtSwarm is a four-weekly art programme for YouTube that showcases new, experimental short films and sound work created by artists.

We need new content to broadcast each episode and are calling for new video or audio pieces to play of any sort, from experimental works to animation, poetry, drama, music or soundscapes, or anything creative. The main criteria is that work must be new, not shared online or previously published, and contains no copyrighted material. You can find terms and full details here:

The theme for the next episode is Gardening, and the deadline is 12pm on Sunday 11 August.

ArtSwarm is published on alternate Fridays on YouTube. You can view any episode here:
