Unlimited Forma Partnership R&D Award
As part of the Unlimited Awards 2019, the inaugural Forma Partnership R&D Award will provide up to £10,000 funding, plus curatorial and production support, for the research and development of a project that blurs boundaries of art form, and challenges audiences both through form and content. This work will build on Forma’s nearly 20 years experience generating ambitious artworks which bring together approaches and expertise from the worlds of art, music, film and theatre.
“Forma are very excited to work alongside Unlimited to support the creation of new cross-disciplinary work by an artist who faces barriers in their career. We believe that contemporary art is changing, and engagement with all kinds of perspectives across many different media is more urgent than ever. We are delighted to apply our expertise in traversing creative boundaries to supporting the development of underrepresented voices in the UK and beyond” – Rachel C Clark, Producer
Artists are asked to consider the experiential quality of their work, and its exploration through cross disciplinary techniques and display methods. Projects wishing to be considered for this award will need to develop an installation or immersive artwork that includes interactive, live, or moving image elements
