About this event

This initiative follows on from the 2020 cybercage event.

We are working with cybersecurity companies and looking to collaborate with creative practitioners on the conjunction of art, technical and creativity to explore perspectives, visions and understanding of cybersecurity. The aim of the intervention is to leave participating cybersecurity businesses with a new creative way to represent their business and values.

We are looking to support artists, performers, film makers, photographers or writers through a commissioning process to work with cybersecurity organisations to offer work for display from 17th September 2021 during #cyberfest2021. The commissions offer a £1500 grant to the artist with expenses for materials not to exceed £500.

We will be holding a discussion with any interested creatives and artists on 2nd July 2021 at 11.00am to explore the commissioning opportunity. The meeting can be accessed through teams at: meeting at 11 o clock 2nd July on teams. So do join us if this sounds interesting to you.

Cyber Eyes Wide Open will span a 3-month period over summer 2021 with teams developing exciting ways to innovatively visualise, perform and represent cybersecurity.
