Each year, Signal commissions up to ten young and emerging artists aged 16-25 to produce a new screen or sound work. The resulting works are projected large scale on the Signal Screens and played along Northbank through the Signal Sound Walk.
In 2019 Signal’s Screen Commissions were awarded to Cielo Croci, Remi Freer, Roshan Ramesh, Hugo Rose, and Alice Watson.
Signal's Sound Commissions were awarded to Thao Ly, Winnie McQuinn, Connor Ross, Mara Schwerdtfeger, and Ruby Willis.
These young artists have been guided by established artists and industry professionals, including project facilitators Yandell Walton and Ryan Granger, along with screen mentors Lauren Dunn; Freya Pitt; and Emile Zile and sound mentors Bridget Chappell Adam Hunt Jonnine Nokes Thembi Soddell and Chris Vik.
