The open call for [Digital] Transmissions II is now live. The annual artist development programme is an incredible opportunity for Jordan-based emerging artists of all practices to work alongside established artists and curators from Jordan and the UK.
Funded by the British Council in Jordan and co-developed by Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts and FutureEverything, the curatorial theme for the programme is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how cultural, socio-political and environmental landscapes are being shaped by AI technologies and conversations.
For emerging artists or practitioners based in Jordan the programme provides 12 artists each year with the chance to:
Participate in-person and online in a series of workshops with established digital artists and curators from Jordan and the UK. To exchange ideas and share knowledge and to experiment, create and present new work in digital media
Showcase their learnings and new work at a public event and exhibition at Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts
Secure an optional and competitive study mobility grant allowing them to travel to the UK for a week of learning and networking with UK-based artists, arts professionals and institutions with the chance to forge links for future collaborative projects between Jordan and the UK
Creative Director at FutureEverything, Irini Papadimitriou says: “If you have a passion for engaging in creative and conceptual sessions with established artists and curators as well as receiving mentoring and training then [Digital] Transmissions II is a great opportunity to participate in all of this, alongside developing and exhibiting your new work.
“The programme to date has been a great success and this year’s theme is topical and thought-provoking. We are delighted to be developing this again in partnership with the National Gallery of Fine Arts and supporting 12 more emerging Jordanian artists.”
