What is Distributed South?
Distributed South is a Media Arts initiative working to develop audiences and dialogue within the sector. Through residencies and partnership working across the South of England, Distributed South aims to move and inform policy within Media Arts and to drive forward new models of practice and approach to the field.
The initiative is funded by Arts Council (London, South East, East, South West) and co-managed by SCAN and Space Media.
