BF Pivot '20 Fellows



This CoLab TechArt Fellowship is inspired by Jaaga &’s resolve to grow the community of techartists and foster creative engagement in leading digital technologies. The Fellowship is offered online and is directed to aspiring techart practitioners from any discipline of art and design. In the challenges of the times, we present the CoLab Fellowship as online program that opens the doors to exciting possibilities in international collaborations.

Supported by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore and British Council’s Architecture and Design Festivals and Biennales grant, this edition of the CoLab Fellowship creates a bridge between Germany, South Asia, UK & India. It is a unique opportunity for a community of hand-picked international fellows to use the limitations of the current moment to explore and showcase collaborative learning and making with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies. Over a two week period we will spend time synchronously four hours daily, working and dialoging with peers and experts who come in as trainers, provocateurs and facilitators.
