King's Lynn: new opportunity for artists and creative technologists
King’s Lynn’s R&D Challenge #1, May - September 2017
Deadline: 08 May 2017 - now closed for applications.
Are you looking to learn new skills and work site-specifically with light and projection?
We’re looking for teams to take part in our R&D challenge to create new projection ideas for King’s Lynn town centre. The deadline for applications was 5pm on 08 May 2017. We welcomed applications from teams of 2 to 4 people offering a range of skills and a shared interest in seeing how they can apply the skills in the creation of new projection based works. Although it's too late to apply, the brief remains available for information here - the full brief.
Four teams will be chosen to participate with this challenge and we'll confirm the selected teams soon - watch this space!
The project will take place between May and September 2017 and comprises three parts: i) a series of professional development workshop; ii) the creation of a new projection work or prototype, with iii) a public showing of the outcomes. Each team will receive a total fee of £1,000 for parts ii and iii.
