Escalator Digital: Ideas Lab
Escalator is a talent development initiative in the East of England supported by Arts Council England which aims to identify, support and invest in artists and artforms through a range of programmes. Escalator Digital is a new strand to the Escalator programme.
National portfolio organisation, Metal, has taken on the responsibility for the Escalator Digital strand on behalf of Arts Council England. Metal, in conjunction with two other National portfolio organisations, Writers’ Centre Norwich and Pacitti Company, present three Ideas labs to share and learn new skills. The labs are designed with an interdisciplinary framework resulting with each lab hosting candidates from a range backgrounds and arts practices.
This film explores the benefits of taking part in the Ideas Labs and importance of digital activity within the arts.
