Round 1: Now Closed
The Axis Digital Residency seeks to support artists who require additional resources and support to develop and disseminate new work over a three month period. We are looking for artists working in any medium, not just digital, but who are interested in sharing their residency experiences with our online community, and who are ready to shine a critical spotlight onto their work and practice.
Successful applicants will receive £1,500, a bespoke package of support, critical engagement from a writer, use of our digital platforms, as well as opportunities to engage with our content and members.
For the first six months of 2021 we’re offering two opportunities for artists to take part in our Axis Digital Residency Programme.
This is an opportunity for experimentation and artistic development over a three month period. It is designed to be outcome focused and to provide opportunities for public and critical reflection on your practice.
In your application you must:
Evidence a project outline that will contribute to the creation of new work for distribution on our digital platform at the end of a three month period.
It is important that you already have ideas for dissemination, such as:
£1,500 broken down as:
Use of our digital platforms, to share your development during the residency and to disseminate new work at the end of the residency period.

A critical spotlight on your work in the form of a text written by a member of the Axis team or an external writer to be distributed among our members and featured on our site.
An opportunity to select content from our membership directory and to contribute to the selection of micro-commissions during your three month residency period.
