Funding Opportunity: Digital Society Bursary

Digital Transformations have opened applications for their Digital Society Bursary (€10,000) which provides a significant opportunity for practitioners of any creative discipline (visual, performing, musical, media, technology, literature) to deliver a project responding to the emerging digital society. The bursary will be open to individuals and groups in Ireland and abroad and will be formally launched at the Digital Transformations conference in Ballina, County Mayo on 19 May.

This bursary supports artists and creative professionals who want to explore the digital society in their work, and put that response centre stage in the debates happening today about what kind of society is emerging via digital technologies. Enriching human contact and the human voice is essential for this transformation to be beneficial and how artists see this transformation needs to be heard not just on the street, but in classrooms and boardrooms as well. The digital society is throwing arts, policy, education, culture and business together in ways that only an artistic sensibility can really fathom.
