Jerwood Arts and FACT are delighted to announce the 3 creatives selected as the 2022 Jerwood Arts / FACT Fellows, who will participate in a funded hybrid residency and artistic development opportunity.

Now in its second year, the Jerwood Arts / FACT Fellowship emerged from FACT’s ongoing commitment to nurturing a diverse new generation of emerging artists, curators, technologists, and cultural activists. The fellowship received applications from over 200 creatives.

The Fellows will take part in a hybrid residency (a mixture of in-person stays in Liverpool and online) to research and develop their initial proposal, responding to our Radical Ancestry programme with outcomes presented at FACT in Summer / Autumn 2022.

During this time, Fellows will receive bespoke training, mentoring, crits, and production / research support from the team at FACT, the other fellows, and an invited selection of our wider collaborators consisting of artists, curators and researchers. The selected artists were chosen by a panel of: Carrie Chan (Curator in Residence, FACT) Maitreyi Maheshwari (Head of Programme, FACT) and Charlotte Horn (Senior Producer, FACT). The awarded Fellows are:

Ashley Holmes (Sheffield, UK)

Lucy Hutchinson
(London and Lancashire, UK)

April Lin 林森 (London, UK and Stockholm, Sweden)

​Through this initiative supported by Jerwood Arts, FACT will continue to champion artistic, cultural and disruptive uses of new media and technology, and further art’s engagement with scientific knowledge.

Carrie Chan, curator in residence and panel member said, "I am impressed by how the selected artists for the Jerwood / FACT Digital Fellowship have shown determination in challenging established knowledge systems and histories through exploring alternative realities, avatars as well as personal archives. Their distinctive proposals demonstrate a variety of interactive approaches in using digital technologies for reclaiming histories and engaging with the communities in Liverpool."
