Apply to the open call for STARTS artistic residencies


The call for Artists will open September 10.

The STARTS Residencies programme aims to support and fund artistic residencies that bring original artistic contributions to technology-based projects. During each STARTS Residency, a Tech Project collaborates with an Artist, leading to the creation of an original artwork, and the development of the innovative aspects of the tech research. A grant (up to 30 000€) is awarded to the Artist of each STARTS Residency as a contribution to their involvement in the residencies programme. A residency can also be supported by a Producer.
