The Digital Hub : Call for Submissions


To mark the next phase in the development of The Digital Hub, we would like to invite submissions from artists working in digital media, to participate in a site-specific exhibition. The Digital Hub Development Agency will provide the brief and a space in which to exhibit their work.

The six artists selected will be allocated one building each from which to draw their inspiration. Artists will be given time to visit and investigate their allocated building, take photos, record sound & video footage etc. These buildings are due to be renovated as part of the site development. This project will serve as an important historical record of the famous Liberties community, as well as an innovative environment for creative work. The completed work will be shown in a gallery environment and online. The final piece must, therefore, lend itself to be shown both physically in a gallery environment and remotely via the Internet.

Work submitted must utilise digital media technology in its construction or in the way in which it is presented. New and experimental video, web art as well as works using mobile technologies, digital stills, sound pieces, and gaming technology will all be accepted.

The Digital Hub is happy to discuss any equipment requirements for the project that the chosen artists may have.

Submissions must include:

A clearly articulated statement of an original proposal specific to the project
(No more than 300 words)
A visual representation of proposal
Relevant portfolio of work no more than 5 images (JPEG), videos/DVDs no longer than 5 minutes.
A current curriculum vitae, detailing previous experience & past exhibitions, if applicable.

The Digital Hub is happy to discuss any equipment requirements for the project that the chosen artists may have.

Over the first half of 2006 the Arts Council is developing a three-year
support programme for individual artists which will be announced in the
summer. This programme aims to build on and enhance the impact of all the
Council¹s direct and indirect supports to individual artists.

To facilitate this review, the Arts Council is offering the following
supports for individuals between January and June 2006: Travel and Mobility
Award (ongoing; at least four weeks before departure); Bursary (closing
date: 10 February); Location One Fellowship (closing date: 24 February)
Banff Residency (closing date: 10 March); Professional Development and
Training Award (closing date: 28 April)

The Arts Council has introduced improvements to bursaries that respond to
the ways in which artists now work. These include the introduction of a
small number of two to three year bursaries; bursaries to allow artists to
work collaboratively and equipment grants.

The Professional Development and Training Award which focuses on activity
that enhances creative practice and supports career development, has been
extended to support study in Ireland and abroad.

Some practical improvements are also reflected in the two international
bursaries which the Council offers, Location One Fellowship and Banff

Another notable development this year is the expansion of the Travel and
Mobility Award, which continues to incorporate an informal short training
strand, and now will allow for group applications to accommodate artists
who, because of the nature of their artistic practice, do not tend to travel
individually. It will also provide support for inward mobility.

The Arts Council website will also contain details of the schemes supported
by the Arts Council and run in conjunction with other agencies. These
include: the Artist-in-the-Community Scheme (Create); Arts & Disability
Awards (Arts & Disability Forum); Frameworks (IFB); Documenting the Arts
(IFB); Splanc! (TG4), and Artist in Prison and Writers in Prison Schemes
(Dept of Justice) and RTÉ Dance on the Box (RTÉ). The Arts Council does not
handle applications for artists¹ schemes.

Full details of Supports for Artists 06 programme will be available in
hardcopy format from early January, or online from the Arts Council website.
