Initiated by Scottish Screen in 2000, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.
The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.
"Best grants ever. Alt-w alumni must be the best supported artists in the business. The benefits for us of winning one of these extended way beyond just the funding."
New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund receives investment from the Centre for Design Informatics, Creative Scotland and the University of the West of Scotland.
