Each participating artist is profiled in the annual critical text FILE NOTE produced by a prominent writer.

The primary focus of the Digital Media Practice Award is for artists to develop and refine their practice, experiment with new materials and/or access the specialised facilities of the sculpture workshop. An awareness of our facilities, resources and artistic programme is helpful to artists when making an application.

This award offers:

  • scheduled access to digital media workspaces and equipment for up to three months.
  • A stipend of €600
  • A written feature in our annual FILE NOTE publication
  • Support from the Digital Media Manager and our curatorial and administrative team.

“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.” – Isadora Epstein – Practice Awardee 2021
