Open Screen 2022: Call out for disabled artists working in the digital realm

Open Screen Call Out for digital artists working online who self-identify as disabled. Developed in partnership with Shape Arts, Open Screen seeks proposals for existing works that respond to the theme of Sci-Fi.

Developed in partnership with Shape Arts, Open Screen is arebyte’s yearly open call for digital artists working online to be exhibited on arebyte on Screen, an expanded and innovative online platform for digital animations, videos, web-based interactive experiences and curatorial interventions.

arebyte welcomes artists who are working with technology to their advantage, or overcoming barriers, criticising matters of inclusivity within technology, and everything in between.

Open Screen is actively aiming to address an area of underrepresentation in the art industry with proposals exploring the role of digital technologies and the new opportunities it creates or hinders.

A panel of judges selects two works for Open Screen. The judging panel for 2022 will be announced soon.

Each selected artist receives a £300 artist fee and curatorial support from arebyte.

Who can apply?

  • Aged 18+ and above
  • No restriction regarding location
  • Practitioner working in the digital realm who identifies as ‘disabled’ under the Social Model of Disability, regardless of impairment.

Applications for Open Screen 2022 are now open
