UPDATE: Following the coronavirus outbreak, this commission had to be paused and reviewed. Having now created a new project timeline and reformatted co-design activity to work safely online we are now ready to go ahead. If you already submitted an application there is no need to re-submit, we will consider these alongside new submissions and be in touch soon after the new deadline.
Artist fee: £2,000 (PAYE)
Dates: June – July
The ‘Forms of Intelligence’ project is exploring animal and plant intelligences, asking how they might inspire the design of new systems which can benefit all living things.

-work in any visual medium
-have an interest in animals, plants or connected living systems
-have experience in visual storytelling and socially engaged contexts
to create a visual response to the ‘Forms of Intelligence’ research material. Material will include podcasts and outputs from online co-design workshops, facilitated by KWMC and DCRC.
