Are you an ambitious artist at the early stages of your career, full of ideas and ready to develop an art project this summer? Sign up for Summer Sessions and earn the financial support provided by our MP3 platform for a residency program that will help you launch your artistic career!

Metamedia Association is inviting emerging artists working in the fields of new media to apply and join the Summer Sessions international residencies.

Summer Sessions are short-term, international residencies for young artists that are organized by a network of cultural organizations all over the world. During the program artists will work in a highly productive atmosphere in which continuous support, feedback and expert supervision is offered. The main idea of the residencies is to help artists jumpstart their professional practice by offering them support from a local sponsor to go abroad for a production residency at a host institute.

Who can apply?

Artists who are at the early stages of their career (under 35 years of age and/or have graduated no more than 5 years before the time of applying) and are working in the fields of new media and innovative art practices.


The duration of a residency lasts approximately between 6 – 8 weeks in the period between June 15th and September 30th, 2017. During the period artists will develop a project from concept to presentable work, ready to show.
