Earlier in the month, the Kenyan incubator, iHub and Goethe Institute announced their intention to fund creatives who use technology in their works and now, applications are open.

A partners gathering that held on 21st of March kicked off their call for proposal from tech art enthusiast seeking funding.

According to a statement on their site,  “last Saturday’s gathering was for clarifying questions and generating engaging interactions between interested artists and techies wishing to submit—collaborative submissions were encouraged.”

Proposal submissions are open till 13th April to digital_art@ihub.co.ke. Final review and selection of proposals to be funded will be done by 27 April and project exhibition will be done in July.

Every proposal, according to iHub, must contain a unique art with the use of technology or technological component; a clear demonstration of how it tallies with the project’s theme – Future in Kenya/East Africa -, visual articulation of the tech art idea which could be relayed in form of a storyboard, diagram drawing/sketch, or any other visual communicative depiction of the idea.
