Open Screen 2021

Friday, 21 May 2021

Developed in partnership with Shape Arts, Open Screen is arebyte’s yearly open call for digital artists working online to be exhibited on arebyte on Screen, an expanded and innovative online platform for digital animations, videos, web-based interactive experiences and curatorial interventions. Arebyte welcomes artists who are working with technology to their advantage, or overcoming barriers, criticising matters of inclusivity within technology, and everything in between.

Open Screen is actively aiming to address an area of underrepresentation in the art industry with proposals exploring the role of digital technologies and the new opportunities it creates or hinders; from experiments in augmented, virtual and mixed reality, to fake news, online bots, social media, darknet and deep fakes.

A panel of judges will select two proposals that will each receive a £850 artist fee to be developed by the shortlisted artists, with curatorial support from arebyte.

Who can apply?

- Aged 18+ and above
- No restriction regarding location
- Practitioner working in the digital realm who identifies as ‘disabled’ under the Social Model of Disability, regardless of impairment.

What are we looking for?

- Proposals for developing new work within the realm of digital art, emerging technologies, and new media.
- Works responding to arebyte’s 2021 theme Realities.
- Works can reference disability, but this is not mandatory.

Deadline for submissions 13 June 21
