Abandon Normal Devices - Open Call

Abandon Normal Devices is offering a bursary of up to £500 for emerging practitioners to showcase new work or work in progress at an event new to our programme in 2013, the AND Fair.


The fair is inspired by the World’s Fairs of old, where inventors could showcase new inventions and discoveries such as moving images, electricity or the fluorescent light bulb.

Whether you are an artist, engineer, hacker, technologist or maker – or you sit somewhere in between – we would love to hear from you.

The deadline is 11 Aug. Click here for details of how to apply.


They're also looking for volunteers

Volunteers are crucial members of the AND team. We wouldn't be able to deliver our programme without them.

We're looking for people to help with a wide range of tasks including installing artwork, stewarding and market research.

Register your interest by 16 Aug if you'd like to get involved.

Liverpool's creative developement agency ACME are launching the brand new network in September. OK it has the same name as the old Liverpool network but we are promised something brand new and a bit more function than the old site, as it has been built from the ground up by Design Agency Splinter. I should know I helped with the user testing, so I hope they took my advice. 

Yes, ACME has been busy reinventing this unique site that promotes Liverpool's creative community, and it will soon be ready for creatives to update their profile and portfolio, and re-connect with others and with your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn accounts.
