To mark the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web (WWW) in March 2019, the British Council has announced a 'digital open call' for all creatives who have a powerful idea that has the ability to unite young people across the world.
The competition is open to anyone based in India or the UK. Project proposals must be submitted by noon, UK time, on 31 January 2019. The best proposals up to a maximum grant of 40,000 GBP will be executed by the council.
Tom Birtwistle, director, North India, British Council, said, “It is said the best way to predict the future is to create it. That happened 30 years ago when Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the web. Today, through our 'digital call', we hope to use this milestone to explore how digital creativity may reshape our world again. We are looking to identify innovative and creative ideas and solutions that inspire and connect millions of young people in India, UK and around the world through art and culture. We have run exciting projects before including Saptan Stories, a crowd sourced story telling project that ran for seven weeks, in collaboration with Aardman Animations. As the web continues to evolve, we hope ideas from our digital call can show us how creativity, collaboration and culture may influence what the future of our connections with each other might look like.”
