The New Fellowship
The aim of the New Fellowship is to show that better digital futures are possible and explore how get there. The fellowship will support people from across Europe who are creating digital tools, developing artistic projects or using other means to work towards just and fair digital futures.
The projects we fund
We are looking for teams or individuals who envision futures in which new technologies improve the lives of all people and foster equity throughout society. The New Fellowship supports the creation of artworks, stories, concepts and tools that help us imagine and work towards digital futures that are inclusive. To this end, we explicitly encourage applications by people who are underrepresented in tech and are less likely to receive support for their project (e.g. for reasons of race, disability, class or gender). Through their projects, New Fellows will envision what future technologies can look like and create tools to help us challenge existing patterns and embrace diversity.
What kinds of support does The New Fellowship offer?
Each New Fellow will receive a stipend of approximately €6,000. The stipend will support the fellow in working on their projects and artworks. to give them the freedom they need to push their project further. Each fellow will also get access to tailored coaching and mentoring
The New Fellowship aims to:
- Develop visionary ideas for inclusive and just digital futures that center on societal challenges and questions rather than technology alone.
- Increase the visibility and representation of underrepresented groups and women in discussions about digital technology.
- Link up, and enrich, discussions around diversity, inclusion, intersectionality and tech.
- Contribute to a European tech and society ecosystem that is anchored by values of collaboration, fairness and equity.
