Alternarration – Digital Artist Commission, Peshkar (Oldham)

Alternarration- Digital Artist Commission, Peshkar (Oldham)

‘Alternarration’ explores responses to Youth Radicalisation across Europe; looking at how it happens, the stories of those who have encountered it, tools for combating it and how youth workers and those working on the front line with young people can help to fight violent extremism on the ground, in their local communities.

‘Alternarration’ also explores and questions what it is to be ‘radical’ in 2018, delving into the loaded nature of the word and what it means to young people.

Peshkar are producing a series of ‘Digital Stories’ that will accompany a wider resource being developed by European partners and we would like a small team of dedicated, passionate, exciting and innovative artists to undertake this work.

You should be…

*An artist working in a digital medium. This could be video, photography, digital sound, game design, digital art, coding or something that we haven’t even heard of yet.

*Happy to collaborate and work as a team with other artists outside your own discipline.

*In possession of your own equipment.

In return…
