Launching at FACT's inaugural Assembly in Spring 2020, the Jerwood FACT Fellowship Programme is at the heart of its commitment to providing meaningful, career-enhancing opportunities for trans-disciplinary artists, film-makers, creative technologists and critical thinkers. Jerwood Arts' Development Programme Fund will support the first two years of the programme, six Fellows in total.
Each cohort of FACT Fellows will champion the artistic, cultural and disruptive uses of new media and technology and art’s engagement with scientific knowledge. Through 10 weeks of intensive support from the team at FACT, Jerwood FACT Fellows are asked to help set future cultural inquiries for its exhibitions and public programme, through a production residency.
The first Fellows to be appointed are:
Yambe Tam (London, UK)
Angela Chan (East Midlands, UK)
Tessa Norton (West Yorkshire, UK)
The Fellows will be encouraged to experiment with different online platforms, as well as test out elements of their research with the public in Spring 2021. In addition, Fellows are invited to participate in FACT’s Transformer Summit 2021, a gathering of leading artists and thinkers to help shape the questions we will explore in our wider future programme.
