Led by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, Stockport Creative Campus (SCC) is a three-year town centre reinvigoration programme to transform Stockport’s heritage-rich historic centre into a sustainable, world-leading digital arts neighbourhood. 

FutureEverything’s role in the SCC project is to deliver a digital creative placemaking programme for the community and arts and culture sector over a three-year period.

FutureEverything is inviting Greater Manchester-based artists/artist collectives, whose practice spans digital art and participatory co-creation, to respond to this brief for the inaugural Artwork #1 project to:

  • Co-design and deliver creative engagement workshops for communities across Stockport borough, with a diverse range of ages and backgrounds, to co-create content to feed into the digital artwork.
  • Create a digital touring artwork that is robust, weatherproof, mobile and can ‘tour’ to community locations.


  • Application Deadline – Monday 20 November 2023 at 17:00
  • Interviews – w/c 27 November 2023
  • Artist appointed – December 2023
  • Workshops delivery – March 2024
  • Premiere artwork – August  2024 
  • Evaluation –  September 2024


For full information about the project and application process, please download the Artist Brief below.

We are inviting interested artists/artist collectives to send us an expression of interest which should cover: 

  • An initial response to this brief including a description of your current artistic practice, your approach to both phases of the project, potential creative tools/platforms/formats that you would use, and the reasons for your interest in this project (not longer than a double-sided A4)
  • Examples of current work or portfolio relevant to the brief including links to screen-based work and participatory projects  (ideally in PDF format)
  • CV (in PDF format)
  • Completed Equal Opportunities Form

Please send expressions of interest to Jonathan McGrath, FutureEverything Producer at with the subject line “STOCKPORT ARTWORK #1”

We will invite a small number of artists/artist teams to discuss their expressions of interest further and we are expecting to appoint an artist in early December 2023.

Digital art can open up exciting new ways of engaging with the environment and connecting communities. Through collaboration, creativity, and connection we believe that we can establish SCC as an exciting destination for the people of Stockport, and provide a world-leading new neighbourhood for the wider creative sector.”
