Now in its seventh year, Black Hole Club is Vivid Projects’ artist development programme. Participants are selected from an annual open call and use the year to collaborate, test and present new aspects to their practices. The programme enables fluid cultural practices and fosters new dialogues between early career and established practitioners.

The 2020 cohort includes fifteen ambitious, talented and risk-taking individuals and groups from across the Midlands region:Ambience Factory, De’Anne Crooks, Formuls, Ambie Drew, Rosa Francesca, Kühle Wampe, Susan Kruse, Leanne O’Connor, Alis Oldfield, Rosa Postlethwaite, Jas Singh, Emily Scarrott, Larissa Shaw, Albert Smith and Symoné. The cohort is based at Vivid Projects production and exhibition space in Digbeth, Birmingham and supported by producer Cathy Wade and company curatorial associates. Areas to be explored include digital art, live performance, experimental audio, film and video, re-thinking archive, collaborative and social practices and digital cultures.
