Call for entries
Deadline: 9 February 2015

The European Digital Art and Science Network, joined by LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial and seven European artistic and cultural institutions, with Ars Electronica as leader, has launched it first international call for an artistic residency.

This Europe-wide initiative offers artists the chance to spend several weeks at the ESO–European Southern Observatory followed by a stay at the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The recipient of this unique opportunity will be decided by a competition being staged right now throughout the world.

This new network is debuting with a competition aimed at artists all over the world. Beginning immediately, aspirants can submit a short video elaborating on a project idea they would like to develop and implement in the context of stays at the ESO and the Ars Electronica Futurelab. A jury made up of representatives of all network members will convene February 23-25 to select two artists to participate in the Residency program. Mentors will accompany and support the two winners at both the ESO and the Ars Electronica Futurelab. Part 1 of the Residency will serve as a source of inspiration; the second part is designed for implementation of the artistic project.
