Residency program in the fields of digital art, media art and bio-art

European Media Art Platform


With the support of the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, for the next 3 years the European Media Art Platform expands its residency program to residencies in 15 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.

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 a person of their choice or a person local to the host institution:

The residency includes:

  • an invitation to the kick-off conference in Zagreb 17th – 19th of June 2022
  • a grant of €4,000 for the applying artist(s) including subsistence costs
  • a grant of €2,000 for collaborating artist(s)
  • a project budget of €4,000
  • accommodation provided by the host organization
  • travel expenses up to €1,000
  • 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 EMAP members’ festivals/exhibitions in 2022-2024, plus the option to receive presentation grants if exhibited by EMAP partner institutions.

How to apply?

Applications should be submitted online and must include a CV, (audio)-visual documentation of previous works, and a preliminary plan and presentation of the proposed project to be developed within the EMAP Residencies programme. The collaborating artists do not have to be fixed at the time of submission.

Applicants must be EU residents or taxpayers in an EU member country or the UK.

Emerging artists, regardless of age and academic degree, are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate and Master’s students are not eligible but PhD candidates can apply.

Deadline for Applications: April 27th, 2022, 23:59 CET
