Ready to explore what happens when music and digital collide? Us too.

We’re looking for two artists with exciting ideas that need some time, space and money to develop them. Interested in using digital technology to develop the ways you create or perform music? We want to hear from you. 

About our Artists in Residence Programme

If selected, you’ll be an Artist in Residence for 10 months from September 2024 to June 2025. You lead your project with support from our team. You decide how to spend your time and the money available. In June you’ll get to share your work right here at The Glasshouse.

Support includes:

  • A support grant of £4,000 towards your time
  • £750 to buy equipment
  • £500 for creative support, such as mentoring or tuition
  • £500 to spend some time away from everyday life working on your project (an artistic retreat if you like)  
  • Access to the rehearsal spaces at The Glasshouse  
  • Access to mentoring and creative support from international media arts agency, Mediale
  • Access to leading-edge facilities and expertise through the Advanced Media Production (AMP) Network
  • An opportunity to present your work to an audience at The Glasshouse in June 2025. This might be a live performance, online experience or installation.
  • Documentation of your project and / or journey throughout the residency. For example, filming of your performance, livestream broadcast, photography etc.
  • Support from the Artist Development and Digital teams
  • Wellbeing support from British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM)
  • Access costs
  • Support from our partners at Newcastle University.  

What kind of projects are we looking for?

We’re not picky when it comes to genres of music. We don’t have any particular topics in mind. The main thing we’re looking for is an interesting project idea that explores what happens when music and digital collide. Something that will stretch you as an artist and give you time to learn new skills.

We’re here to help you develop creatively and move forward with your career. Digital could apply to audio and sound, immersive and interactive technology, music tech, gaming, web, visuals, applications exploring augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence etc. These are some examples but there may be others.

As a new kind of programming for us at The Glasshouse, we’re keen to discover new ideas and ways of working and presenting music along with you – supported by our expert partners who are leading the way in this field.
