Applications are now open for five residencies for emerging artists and creative technologists working at the intersections of art, technology and sustainability.

Deadline: Friday 2 May 5pm ECT.


Thematic: #stacktivism is a term that attempts to give form to a critical conversation and line of enquiry around infrastructures and the relationship we have to them. #stacktivism has recently attracted a great deal of debate and interest and is an ongoing, and increasingly popular subject of interrogation for theorists, economists and creative practitioners alike. As the digital divide and post‐internet discourses lose traction and diversify, artists and creative technologists are faced with a new set of trending critical dialogues in the face of the morphing technological landscape. The INFRA_SPECTION residency acknowledges this shift, and the participating artists are invited to enter into a dialogue with the rapidly evolving perspectives of #stacktivism as a catalyst for their practice.

This cycle of The White Building residencies seek to question emergent behaviors and formulate ways to articulate the changes taking place “from here to there”. The residencies will generate a programme of events and critical debate around how creative practices are positioned within our contemporary convergence culture. INFRA_SPECTION will also raise questions about the terms of engagement artists and creative technologists are working with in their techno-political landscape and beyond.

Applications must be received by Friday 25th April 5pm.

Residencies will be based in the dedicated open-plan residency studio at The White Building, Hackney Wick.
