Deadline for Applications: November 30th, 2022, 23:59 CET
For the first time, Hexagram is collaborating with European Media Art Platform (EMAP), as special host organization in the call for applications to residencies. European artists, or collectives can apply with a project proposal for a two-month residency taking place between March and October 2023. Independent artists and PhD students are eligible (Europeans only). We invite members to circulate the call in their network and institutions.
With the support of the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, for the next 2 years the European Media Art Platform expands its residency program to residencies in 16 countries. We offer residencies for artists, artist duos, collectives or other artistic collaborations working in the fields of digital art, media art, and bio-art. As a new feature to the EMAP residency programme we have introduced the “collaboration” component. Applicants are expected to include a proposal for a collaboration in their application. The artists will be collaborating with a person of their choice or a person local to the host institution:
