With the support of the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, and for the years 2022-2024, the European Media Art Platform expands its residency program for artists, collectives or other artistic collaborations working in the fields of digital art, media art, and bio-art to residencies in 16 countries.
European artists, or collectives can apply with a project proposal for a residency of two months within March to November 2023. The artists will be collaborating with an artist of their choice or an artist local to the host institution.
The residency includes an invitation to the kick-off conference and network meeting in Athens 8th – 9th of March 2023, a grant of €4,000 including subsistence costs, a grant of €2,000 for collaborating artist(s), production budget of €4,000, free accommodation, travel expenses up to €1,000, and free access to technical facilities and/or media labs of the host institution. It also includes a professional presentation and the possibility to participate in exhibition tours at our members’ festivals or exhibitions in 2023-2024, plus the possibility to get exhibited by EMAP partner institutions.
Applications should be submitted online at call.emare.eu and must include a CV, (audio)-visual documentation of previous work, and a preliminary plan and presentation of the proposed project to be developed within the EMAP Residencies programme. Collaborating artists do not have to be decided at the time of submission.
Applicants must be EU citizens or taxpayers in an EU member country.
Undergraduate and Master students are not eligible but PhD candidates are accepted. Emerging artists, regardless of age and academic degree, are encouraged to apply.
The artists are encouraged to apply for institutions that are not located in their country of residence.
