Applications are now open for Open Source Collaborations, a project that links artists who work with audio-visual mediums (or make work which can be presented audio-visually) with mentors who have the experience and equipment necessary to bring a creative project to life. Successful applicants will be matched with someone from our pool of artists and facilitators who will not only give you advice, but will help you take your ideas to the next level through both critical and collaborative discussion.

Remote work has never been more possible, and engaging the creative brain when so much of our previous lives are off limits is an unquestionably positive act. Those selected will receive five consultations over a two week period (13-27 July) with their chosen mentor via Zoom calls (though both artist and mentor can work extra hours on their projects if agreed and possible).

All created works will be a maximum of three minutes long, and will be given a platform on the Albany and Foreign Body Productions’ online channels, as well as being shown at a virtual streaming event in the first week of August (date TBC).

The fundamental goal of this project is to provide a space for artists to make work with like minded people – the scope can be as broad as we want it to be.

We will accept and develop;

  • Short film concepts
  • Music Videos
  • Radio plays
  • Musical Compositions / Songs
  • Sound Design Pieces
  • Video Essays
  • Poetry / Spoken Word Pieces (considering how to present them with multimedia)


Applicants must be over 18 years old and applications close 2pm on Monday 29 June. Applicants will be contacted by Monday 6 July.
