Digital Routes – Artist Development Programme

We’re launching Digital Routes, an opportunity for an early-career underrepresented artist or artist-led company based in the North of England. This project is all about developing a new piece of work that makes innovative use of digital technologies. We’re looking to support a collaborative, outward thinking, and inquisitive artist who would benefit from sustained support in the creation of a new piece.

This support will include:

  • £4000 of seed funding
  • Free rehearsal space
  • A high quality film made of your R+D period
  • Masterclasses and mentoring
  • Producing support and development of the future life of the work

If you think this could be you please download our application back below. By ‘underrepresented’ we mean artists who have been least consistently employed and supported in the UK arts sector. This may be because of barriers
arising from, but not limited to, ethnicity, socio-economics, sexuality, gender, having caring responsibilities, and being deaf and/or disabled. We leave this to applying artists to self-define. We will be hosting a Zoom Q+A about the project on Tuesday 29th June 7.00pm, if you’d like to sign up to ask the company questions about the opportunity then please email artistdevelopment@imitatingthedog.co.uk with the subject line ‘Digital Routes Zoom Q+A’. 

The deadline for applications is Midday 7th July.
