SparkedEcho are offering 18 digital arts commissions for Electric Medway festival.

We are seeking to commission 18 digital creatives in the Medway area who can produce innovative artworks for the upcoming Electric Medway festival.

This could be work that is short-form, a workshop, a pop-up or participatory activity, a streamed or live event, downloadable content, an offline activity or a site-specific piece, or something else! Electric Medway will run between 28 August - 6 September 2020.

If you’re an expert in VR, live coding, interactive theatre, geolocated experiences or other interesting uses of digital and culture - this could be for you!

These commissions have been jointly funded by Arts Council England and Medway Council.

SparkedEcho is a grassroots music organisation, working with some of the most marginalised groups in Kent and Sussex. We use sound-based arts as a tool for social change. Through local partnerships, we produce powerful experiences that push the boundaries of live, digital and participatory arts.

Apply now:
● Offering a fixed fee of either £250 or £750, inclusive of travel and own equipment
