DRIVA Arts DRIVA logoWired Sussex has launched a new initiative providing artists with a unique opportunity to learn about, experiment with and utilise emerging technologies in their ideas, practices and work.

The ‘Arts Driva @ FuseBox’ programme, which is in partnership with the University of Brighton and is funded by Arts Council England and the European Structural Investment Fund, will give 12 selected artists a fully subsidised six-month residency at their innovation hub The FuseBox.

Through access to spaces, facilities, support and expertise, the programme will enable selected artists to:

- Gain training and knowledge in emerging technologies (immersive, interactive, 5G, quantum computing)
- Extend their practice using new technological tools and platforms
- Engage in collaborative activity with start-ups and innovators
- Develop methods to further impact and communicate with audiences
- Establish relationships with an extensive network of individuals and organisations
- Access commercial opportunities with local technology companies

Arts Driva @ FuseBox is a regional programme for artists based in Crawley, Brighton & Hove, Lewes, Croydon, Chichester, Horsham, Worthing and the surrounding areas.

More information about the opportunity and how to apply can be found here:

Open days are also being held to give those interested a chance to visit The FuseBox, experience the immersive facilities and get a better understanding of what the programme offers.
