Digital Artist Brief SHIFT 2017
Cheshire East Council (CEC) invites expressions of interest from artists, designers and makers
engaged with the theory and practice of innovative digital arts and research as part of the SHIFT
Proposals can range from online work to installations in the public realm. Artists will be
supported by experienced members of the SHIFT team. The installations or exhibitions will
be presented across Cheshire East sites or online throughout 2017. Exhibition sites could
range from historical properties to empty shops in the region.
SHIFT is a year of diverse programming taking place across Cheshire East throughout 2017. The
programme will feature exhibitions, workshops and events, culminating in a symposium at the
end of the year. We are currently interested in exploring themes of science including
biotechnologies, future healthcare and space; smart cities or towns in both a rural and urban
context, and future making skills.
