FutureEverything, the digital culture and new media art festival, has launched a new bursary scheme providing free passes for 15 individuals.
Applications are now open for the passes, with the Manchester-based festival offering places to ‘those from lower economic backgrounds and underrepresented groups who would benefit from FutureEverything’s events and networks’.
This year’s event, which takes place 30 March – 2 April 2016, would normally cost £180 for the conference, live events and festival commissions.
Now in its 21st year, in recent years the festival has been branching out internationally and in October 2015 presented FutureEverything Singapore
FutureEverything has launched the bursary scheme because it wants to ‘make sure everyone has an opportunity to engage with our programme, experience new ideas and meet new people that gather around our festivals’.
Bursary recipients will also have the opportunity to publish their writing or other ‘creative output’ on FutureEverything’s website, although they will not be obliged to do so by the festival.
Those wishing to apply should email firstname.lastname@example.org explaining who you are and why you should attend this year’s FutureEverything.
The deadline for applications is 8 February, 2016.
