We will award one person £20,000 for ten months at roughly 2.5 days/week. You will be contracted and paid via the University of Bristol but managed by Watershed and the Fellowship host.

Our Fellowships are aimed at freelancers, practitioners, industry and academics. They are intended to be a period of collaborative thinking and experimentation, applying practice, expertise or relevant experience. They are an opportunity to explore ethical questions, consider what makes a meaningful experience for audiences, ask new questions and test high-risk ideas.

Our work will be stronger with greater diversity and we welcome applications from those who are currently underrepresented in the culture, technology and higher education sectors. We understand that each of us brings our experiences, our backgrounds and our own unique lens to what we do so no one is expected to represent any specific groups.

This Fellowship is hosted by Knowle West Media Centre, which is an arts centre and charity supporting people to make positive changes in their lives and communities, using technology and the arts to come up with creative solutions to problems and explore new ways of doing things.

This Fellowship is part of the MyWorld IDEAS programme, funded by UKRI.

The application process:

You are invited to answer four questions on an online form focusing on how you meet the criteria for the Fellowship in Residence, and how you can build care into the process.

Shortlisted applicants will then be invited to interview with members of the MyWorld partnership and KWMC.
