OPEN CALL: New Forms of Togetherness Digital Residency for Artists | Goethe-Institut Glasgow and the Alliance Française Glasgow | Deadline: 09.11.2020

The programme consists of online residencies which will contribute to the interdisciplinary discourse between artists and partners around the topic of Artificial Intelligence. The remote residency will allow the artists to continue to work from their own space with the digital support of our partners: the National Library of Scotland, the Social Brain in Action Lab and the NEoN Festival of Digital Arts. A dialogue will be created around artificial intelligence, between the artists, the partners and an online audience. In December 2020, the three selected artists will introduce themselves and their methods to a wider audience on NEoN Festival of Digital Arts’ digital platform. They will then develop further ideas while taking part in remotely held input sessions and workshops from our partners and from experts in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Finally, artists will present the outcome of their work on a digital platform or -if possible- in a physical way with the support of NEoN Festival of Digital Arts and the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow. To financially support their residency, each artist will receive 1.000,00€ for production costs, as well as a 2.000,00€ fee. The funding of technical equipment may also be included, depending on the artist’s individual work and endeavour. Fees and costs will be paid in instalments throughout the year, in discussion with the artist. Given the general context of uncertainty caused by the current pandemic, we reserve the right to adjust this project to the benefit of the artists. Financial or thematic changes might be made throughout the year, in agreement with the artists.
