Each year, FSAS provides artists and graduates from our academic partners with time, space, facilities and in-house professional support. We also include an allowance to help them experiment and test in their practice.
FSAS offers two non-residential digital media awards annually: the Practice Awards and the Graduate Awards. They provide emerging and established artists with fully subsidised time and access to our Digital Media equipment and workspaces to develop, and experiment with, their practice. As part of the awards, support and guidance are provided by our digital media manager, curatorial and administrative teams. The awards aim to support artistic practice to produce, develop and experiment by providing access to professional resources and facilities.
The Digital Media Award gave me the opportunity and taught me the skills to work in video which was an entirely new medium for me. Through the tutorial sessions and getting access to equipment at Fire Station, I was able to make work that opened up
a whole new realm of my arts practice.
