Collusion is looking for artists to take part in our data-culture lab, a week long development session that will explore evolving ideas and ways in which artists can engage with this mass data culture, set against the backdrop of Cambridge as a leading centre of research and development. We invite artists from all disciplines to apply for this exciting lab opportunity. Participants will have a unique opportunity to work in an intensive peer environment with artists, academics and computer engineers leading to new pilot projects. To apply, read the brief and complete the application form by 5pm on 12 December 2016.
Collusion is an experimental, not for profit agency based in Cambridge working at the intersection of arts technology and human interaction. We collaborate with artists, technologists and academics to create ambitious, disruptive, immersive works that consider the impact of emerging technology on society, inviting public engagement and interaction. The lab is part of the in_collusion programme, a three year talent development programme that’ll help creative people and businesses to develop new skills and ideas around three emerging technologies - artificial intelligence, data culture, and virtual/augmented/mixed reality.

The lab is supported by Anglia Ruskin University, University of Cambridge Museums with Arts Council England and the Greater Cambridge, Greater Peterborough LEP.
