Signal Film and Media is delighted to announce a new micro-commission 
opportunity, as part of its year-long Lost Stations digital arts 
programme. The micro-commission is designed to showcase digital artwork 
by a Cumbrian-based artist, based on the theme of Lost Stations.

*The Brief*

We are looking for an artist to respond to the theme of Lost Stations, a 
huge network of disused train lines and stations that once ran across 
Barrow-in-Furness and the legacy of its boom years. Now almost 
invisible, these ‘Lost Stations’ reflect key moments in Barrow’s 
history, serving as a metaphor for the changing fate of a town and a 
ghost image of its past.

Artworks must incorporate the digital, but submissions may include film, 
photography, sound, animation, mixed media or performance art. The work 
will be open for public viewing for a number of weeks, or it can take 
place on a shorter timeframe if they include a live element.

Artists will receive:

-       £500 bursary towards production and materials

-       An additional £500 of in-kind support including: 2 x mentoring 
meetings, installation support from technical staff, access to Signal’s 
in-house technical equipment and travel costs.

Applications will be reviewed by a panel including Loren Slater, 
Director of Signal Film and Media, Phil Northcott, Curator, Bren 
O’Callaghan, Visual Art Programme Manager at HOME, Manchester & Dani 
Admiss, Independent Digital Curator, London.
