Ukie collaborating with V&A on Games Design Residency

 
Bursary: £8,400 inclusive for six months continuous residency at the V&A, plus a further proportionate amount for the production period in Dundee (subject to tax and national insurance).
 
The V&A is inviting applications from early to mid-career UK-based digital games designers who wish to develop their practice in response to the V&A’s Britain 1500 – 1900 galleries. The Residency will be based in the V&A for six months, and will include a substantial public engagement programme. It will be followed by a production period that will be based in Dundee, funded by the V&A at Dundee partners, including the University of Abertay Dundee. The V&A Residency will take place over a six-month period from October 2013 – March 2014 in London with the Dundee-based production period to take place before end of July 2014. A studio will be provided at the V&A in London, and a work base in Dundee. The residency has been organised in collaboration with Ukie.
 
EXTENDED Deadline for applications - 6 February
Interviews - 8th March

The residency is open to UK-based practitioners. It will provide a monthly bursary (taxable) and additional budget for materials and equipment. A team drawn from the Museum’s staff, the University of Abertay Dundee and an industry mentor will provide support throughout the project. We are interested in practitioners who: wish to work with the Museum’s resources and collections; would welcome the opportunity to work actively on projects with the public; and are interested in presenting and interpreting their work for visitors. Applicants should have a track record of development, innovation and regular exposure to new projects.
