The successful applicant will receive:

• A £2,000 budget to produce a new digital commission for Spike Island’s website and/or online channels
• An artist’s fee of £2,000
• Promotion via Spike Island’s website and online channels before and during the launch of the commission in summer 2024
• Annual membership to Spike Island Associates programme, which offers free access to regular talks, one-to-ones with artists, critics and curators, and other opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and support
• Support from Spike Island’s Programme team to develop and present the commission

The commission is for South West-based artists from all backgrounds, including those already working digitally as well as those new to digital media. Artists at any stage of their careers may apply but please note that we are not able to accept applications from artists currently undertaking an undergraduate course.

We are keen to hear from artists looking to develop new digital artwork to be shared with our audiences online in the summer of 2024 via our website and/or online channels.

The commission can be on any theme and in any digital format (from sound and video to animation or performance) but it must be created specifically to be experienced online, and will ideally explore innovative ways of using digital media to engage and connect with diverse audiences.

Deadline to apply: Sunday 1st October
