Future Network Shorts is a new digital programme from Metal.
It has been developed from existing live events which take place at all Metal venues (Future Network in Peterborough, Future Park in Southend and Future Station in Liverpool). Through this programme, we aim to financially support artists through and beyond the testing time of COVID-19 and connect them with online audiences through diverse, entertaining and engaging content.
Each month from May 2020, Metal will host Future Network Shorts – the last Thursday of each month.
The event runs as a mini online ‘festival’. Across the day, 6 different artists will make appearances throughout the day, or host work digitally for you to engage with – this might be via a Zoom call, a digital workshop, a live performance on our social media channels or a virtual exhibition / article on our website.
Similar to the ‘3 Min Wonders’ format which is often used in Metal’s programming, these 10 minute slots are open for artists to test out ideas, perform, showcase work, hold conversations, experiment and take risks.
There is no set format. We look forward to presenting podcast sections, discussions, how to guides, dance, short talks, workshops, scratch shows and much more, hosted live by artists from their homes.
As this is a programme shared across all 3 Metal sites, the best place to get all the info is by following Metal Culture UK on social media. Follow @MetalCultureUK on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, as not to miss out! Here, we will announce our artists, set times and digital access information.
