    Opportunities: new arts commissions open for 2015

Brighton Digital Festival is incredibly pleased to announce two new 
artistic commissioning opportunities for the 2015 Festival, which will 
run from September 1st to 27th this year. These two new commissioning 
strands have been developed to support artists, technologists and 
contemporary creative practitioners to produce ambitious new work for 
the 2015 Festival.

Prior commissions by the Festival have supported artworks such as Oliver 
Hein’s kinetic multimedia installation Hidden Lines 
<http://www.brightondigitalfestival.co.uk/events/hidden-lines>, and 
Joseph Young’s subversive yet earnest exploration of democracy in 
Revolution #10 
<http://www.brightondigitalfestival.co.uk/events/revolution-10/>. As the 
Festival continues to grow, the depth and scope of the arts commissions 
is being ever expanded to reflect the diverse nature of contemporary 
arts practice, and increase the opportunities for the Festival to 
support artists in producing new works.

*Arts & Technology Commissions*

The Festival has increased the Arts & Technology Commissions for 2015, 
now offering up to £8,000 to artists and creative technologists to 
produce ambitious interdisciplinary work that explores the intersection 
of arts, technology, and society. More information can be found in the 
full brief for the Arts & Technology Commission.

*newforms Commissions*

Supporting emerging artist and collectives, 2015 will see the premier of 
the newforms commissions, which will award £3,500 to produce new work 
that presses against or transcends boundaries between art and digital 
culture. More information can be found in the full brief for the 
newforms Commissions.
