With the support of the European Union’s Creative Europe program, the European Media Art Platform expands for the next three years its residency program for artistic duos, collectives or other artistic collaborations working in the fields of digital art, media art, and bio-art, to residencies in 15 countries.

Applications deadline: 27 April 2022, 23:59 CET


European artists or collectives can apply with a project proposal for a residency of two months within June 2022 to January 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 in Zagreb at 17th-19th June 2022, a grant of €4,000 for the applying artist(s) including subsistence costs, a grant of €2,000 for the collaborating artist(s), a project 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 option to participate in exhibition tours at our members’ festivals/exhibitions in 2022-2024, plus the option to get exhibited by EMAP partner institutions.

Applications are 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 program. The collaborating artists do not have to be fixed at the time of submission.
