Jerwood FACT Fellowships Programme

FACT stands for Film, Art and Creative Technology. Imagined and made in Liverpool, it commissions internationally exceptional art, science and technology projects that radically explore society and its most pressing issues. In 2018/19, it worked with 88 artists, hosted 21 international residencies and welcomed circa 250,000 visitors to its building. FACT collaborates with over 10,000 adults and young people through its Learning Programme every year, which it delivers in partnership with schools and community organisations across Liverpool City Region.

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.
