In partnership with De Montfort University’s MTI2 Institute for Sonic Creativity and the Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Programme we’re excited to share the opportunity to apply for a Collaborative Doctoral Award – a four-year, fully funded PhD studentship based at Phoenix and DMU. The successful candidate will act as a participatory artist-in-residence, focused on widening participation and addressing digital exclusion through co-creation in sonic art.
The artist-in-residence will work with Phoenix and MTI2 to widen cultural access and engagement in the field of sonic art, working with a range of community partners. Over a four-year period they will contribute to the development of our creative learning and outreach activities, exploring the unique opportunities that sonic art offers to help us understand and transform our lived environment. The intention of the project is to demonstrate the vital role a participatory artist-in-residence can play at a digital arts venue.
