Open call | Summer Sessions 2021 International Residency


Deadline: MAY 20, 2021

Metamedia Association and MI+ platform are inviting emerging artists working in the fields of new media arts and technologies to apply and join the Summer Sessions international residency. Summer Sessions are short-term international art and technology residencies for emerging artists and designers. A network of cultural organizations all over the world both sponsors and hosts the residencies.

Every summer we offer early-career artists and designers support so they can take part in production residencies abroad. If selected, the artist will gain an opportunity to work in a highly productive atmosphere with support, feedback and expert supervision. Each Summer Sessions residency lasts approximately eight weeks and takes place between June and September. During this period the artist will develop his/her project from concept to presentable work, ready to show.

/ Who can apply?

Artist and designers working with art and technology are eligible to apply if they (1) are under the age of 35 and/or have graduated within the past five years and (2) live in a country where there is a Summer Sessions sponsoring partner. A list of sponsor institutions can be found below. For further information please contact the following email address: contact@metamedia.hr.

/ Why should I apply?

Selected artists will receive access to the facilities of the host institution, expert support and an opportunity to present the resulting work at a public event. A budget will be provided to cover travel, accommodation, materials and a stipend.

/ How do I apply?

Create a two-minute video in which you explain your project and how you would realize it during the Summer Sessions. There are no restrictions with regard to theme or topic. Note that you may not submit any additional materials, written or otherwise. Selections will be made solely on the basis of the videos. Upload your video to a service such as YouTube or Vimeo.* Then fill out the online application, providing your personal details and a link to your video.

*Note that YouTube allows you to make a video unlisted, meaning it cannot be found by anyone who doesn’t know the URL. Vimeo allows you to set a password to restrict viewing of your work.

To apply visit www.summersessions.net, deadline is May 20, 2021.*

*Due to the COVID-19 crisis, some partners in the Summer Sessions network may not be able to take part in an international exchange this year. Should this be the case, Summer Session residency will be hosted locally. We aim to present the outcomes in an international context once coronavirus containment measures have been lifted.
