Traditional documentary media has been disrupted by the internet, user generated content and changing audience expectations in recent years. REACT‘s Future Documentary Sandbox scheme will fund collaborations between academics and companies that explore the overlap between broadcast and the internet, creating new forms and content for the documentary space.
Applicants are invited to participate in one of three half-day workshops and submit a written application. Workshops will take place in Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter. Places are limited and so will be issued on a first come first served basis. Full details about the scheme, including the application form and overview are available at www.react-hub.org.uk.
The workshop will give you an opportunity to learn more about the scheme, share and refine your idea, get inspired and meet potential collaborators. Future Documentary Sandbox will seek to support shared learning, creative collaboration and brilliant ideas. You do not need to have an idea of partner in place already to attend.
The workshops are designed to support these objectives and you must attend one if you would like to apply (you may attend any of the events). A full agenda and directions to the venue will be circulated in advance of the event.
The date for the Cardiff Ideas Lab will be announced shortly.
