Callout open for two creative labs: deadline 24 March @ 5pm

Cambridge University Museums are partner in the in_collusion programme, exploring new ways of collaboration between artists, museums, technology and businesses.

Collusion are running a three year talent development programme that will help creative people and businesses to develop new skills and ideas around three emerging technologies - artificial intelligence, data culture, and virtual/augmented/mixed reality.

Through a series of national call-outs, we seek artists to take part in creative labs - week long development sessions that explore evolving ideas and ways in which artists can engage with technologies/impacts of technologies that are shaping our world.

Artists from all disciplines are invited to apply for these exciting lab opportunities. Participants have a unique opportunity to work in an intensive peer environment with artists, academics and computer engineers leading to new pilot projects.

Lab A: Virtual, augmented & mixed reality |  Monday 15 – Friday 19 May 2017 | Cambridge Junction, Cambridge UK - This lab will take a practical and theoretical approach, framed within a peer-to-peer environment.  There will be taught sessions covering Unity software, HTC Vive, HoloLens, 360 video, use of sound and project workflow. This will be balanced with theoretical talks on virtual, augmented and mixed reality by artists and our industry partners.

Lab B: Artificial intelligence | Monday 12 – Friday 16 June 2017 | Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (University of Cambridge), Cambridge UK - Working with our partners, this lab will create a critical context for exploring AI from all perspectives, including the neighbouring areas of data culture and internet of things. There will be a mixture of taught sessions on how AI works, along with an AI ‘jungle’ of devices such as Alexa, Siri, Cortana and WolframAlpha. The lab will be an excellent context for live art, writing, online projects, drama and other hybrid work.

To apply - Visit  and apply by 5pm on Friday 24 March 2017.
