New Talent

We are seeking to recruit two New Talent Fellows in Digital Placemaking

The New Talent Fellows will work alongside two Inclusion, two Industry and two Academic Fellows to form a cohort of eight Fellows.

  • The New Talent fellowship award is £12k
  • Fellowships run from June 2019 to May 2020
  • Fellowships are part-time and flexibly structured

New Talent Fellows are in the early stages of their career, just emerging from a career break, education or training, or starting to include aspects of digital creativity in their work. They see themselves becoming key players within the creative technology sector.

We will support Fellows during an 11-month programme to think deeply about the potentials, challenges and opportunities in the area of Digital Placemaking. You will apply to us with a specific question, or set of questions, that you want to explore. These will be questions that you don’t know the answers to but which are well informed by your knowledge and experience so far. This is a unique and exciting chance to step back from commercial, academic or career pressures, and focus on new and innovative areas of research, exploration and collaboration.
