Call out: Dreaming with Machines

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Are you interested in algorithmic technologies, music production and sampling within your music? 

Join Manchester sound artist Vicky Clarke for four days of making music with machine learning to create a series of audiovisual dreamscapes ready for transmission on the internet.

Machine learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI), where neural networks detect patterns in sets of data and use them to make predictions. As an emerging field in music making, sonic AI has great potential for how we compose, generate material and collaborate with machines. 

Open to people of marginalised genders aged 18-30*, on this project you’ll get the opportunity to explore a range of accessible tools to generate sound, text and images using a variety of open source training models. 

Together you’ll look at the work of groundbreaking artists and technologists working in the field and consider artistic, ethical and conceptual issues around bias, autonomy and creativity. 

There is no need to be able to code, the project is aimed at beginners! 

Dates and Location

5, 6, 9 and 10 May 2022
9.30am – 4.30pm
SeeSaw, Manchester, M1 6NG

We can cover travel costs for those who need it, plus a £25 daily allowance.

What’s Involved

On this project you will:

Learn about machine learning (a branch of AI) and how it can be used creatively for music making

Gain practical skills using a range of accessible tools and interfaces covering sound, text and image generation

Discuss our relationship to these emerging creative technologies and consider issues of bias, ethics and artistic autonomy

Create artworks; a series of dreamscapes and human-machine collaborations to share online

Cultural Practitioners: Let schools know what you have to offer this summer

Eligibility:

Curious Minds wants to put your work on the map.

You may have seen Curious Minds' open letter circulating recently, addressed to the Secretary of State for Education. In it, we called on the Government and school leaders to #PassTheBaton on summer learning to the nation’s army of teaching artists and creative educators – many of whom are sorely in need of work after almost a year of lockdowns and restrictions on their practise. It also highlighted the very real and pressing need amongst our country’s young people for a summer of creative fun, freedom and friendship, that will give them the best possible route to effective learning when the new academic year begins in autumn.

As part of the campaign, Curious Minds has developed an interactive digital map. This map will help demonstrate to school leaders and policy-makers the vast scale of the creative and cultural education workforce which exists in our communities nationwide – from freelance artists, through grassroots cultural organisations to Arts Council NPOs.

Make your mark here.
