(Algo|Afro)Futures Mentoring Programme

Published: Posted on

In collaboration with Antonio Roberts, Alex McLean, FoAm Kernow, and Vivid Projects, we are excited to announce: 


a mentoring programme for early career Black artists who want to explore the creative potential of live coding.

(Algo|Afro)Futures will take place from April – June 2021 at Vivid Projects in Digbeth and online. The programme will consist of four sessions. Dates will be confirmed in response to lockdown restrictions and participant availability.

The call for applications is open now until 23:59 on 14th March GMT. Applications submitted after this date will not be considered.

Four successful applicants will be selected to take part.

Each participant will receive a fee of £100 per workshop, plus reasonable travel expenses.

We are looking for applications from Black early career artists developing work within performing arts practices (music, choreography, live/performance art, etc). Prior experience in coding is not required - only a curiosity to learn! Live coding is surprisingly accessible, and as an algorithmic artform has more in common with weaving, cooking and knitting than software engineering. We are interested in supporting people to take it in new directions.
