Peshkar is on the hunt for three exciting digital artists to work on a brand new European project looking at Migration, Community Cohesion and Interculturalism in the UK and Europe in the 21st Century.

InterMEDS is an Erasmus+ project with partners in the UK, Portugal, Greece, Spain, Cyprus and North Macedonia that aims to generate a series of research, resource and policy documents to support organisations and communities across Europe to advocate for the positive outcomes of Migration. The project runs between January 2020 and May 2021 and concludes with a conference in the UK to share the outcomes.

This commission is seeking a team of artists to work across the project to generate creative outcomes with communities that contribute to the wider aims of the project. We are looking for artists to work in a range of digital media, however you may not have an established digital practice. If you have a great idea then we can support you to make it happen. You also need to have an interest in working in a participatory context, there is an expectation within this project that you will undertake workshops with young people and communities that will feed into the work you produce.

For the full brief and details of how to apply, please contact steph@peshkar.co.uk. The deadline for this commission is 5pm Friday 11th January 2020.
