*What is Digital Art within the context of this programme?

For this programme digital art is artwork that is created exclusively in the digital space; it can either exist in the digital space or be translated into a physical object or tangible experience through technology. Work that exists only in the digital space can be artwork that is consumed online or offline; the latter having some form of installation in a venue.

This grant programme does not cover the simple digitisation of art (in any artform) or performance and must relate to the development of your artistic practice and digital capability. Filmed performances, audio recordings or video capture of material that would be intended for in-person performance is not suitable as the output of a project proposal, and applications applying for such output activity will be rejected as ineligible. Such filmed or recorded elements can be used as assets within a piece of digital art, for example within animation, virtual experiences, or app development.

Who can apply?

Eligible applicants to this scheme are as follows:

  • Arts organisations, registered charities and other organisations which cannot distribute profits
  • Groups of organisations working together to deliver specific projects
  • Organisations currently in receipt of an Arts Council Annual funding Programme award may apply for:
    • projects of an exceptional nature which were not anticipated at the time of their AFP application
