ICA Online Fellowship Programme

DEADLINE:30 June 2020

The Institute for Creative Arts (ICA) invites applications for an Online Fellowship Programme designed to help artists develop and realise their interdisciplinary artistic work online.


The Programme invites artists to re-imagine an existing work, or to create a new work, as an online experience. The work – a live art or interdisciplinary work using music, theatre, dance or fine art – may already be in existence and may have been seen before. So the artist will have a pre-existing concept and possibly some accompanying textual, sonic and visual material. Using this as a basis, applicants are invited to imagine ways in which this may be experienced online. Twenty Fellows will be selected based on, in the first instance, the innovation and quality of the work, and secondly the quality of the proposal with regards its online rendering.

While all applications will be considered on merit, priority will be given to artists from the African continent who are currently not employed full time.


All 20 selected Fellows will receive SAR 15,000 towards their work. They will collaborate with an interaction designer (appointed by the ICA) to develop a plan and a rendering for the online showing of the work. Based on the specific requirements of each work, and the possibilities for online presentation, the works of ten fellows will go on to be produced online, while the other ten fellows will engage in a public discussion about their work.
