OPEN CALL: RESIDENCY PROGRAM FOR DIGITAL ARTISTS 2022

OPEN CALL
In collaboration with the team behind Kreativ Teknologi at Tvibit, we invite digital artists to embark on a residency adventure unlike any other in Tromsø, Norway!

Are you a digital media artist seeking an adventure of a lifetime in Tromsø, Norway? Planning to launch or showcase your project into the great unknown like the polar explorers of yore? If you love working on the frontier of digital arts, media, or music, this might be the opportunity for you.

Tvibit in collaboration with Insomnia Festival is offering a 1-month residency program for young, up and coming digital media artists between the ages of 20 - 35 to experience life north of the Arctic circle in Tromsø, Norway. The opportunity allows them to work with their projects - from the 23rd of September to the 23rd of October.

The artist-in-residence will be given full accommodation in Tromsø, stocked with food supplies to last the entire stay and a place to work with their projects at Tvibit´s Media Lab/Makerspace with assistance from members of their Kreativ Teknologi team.

The aim is for these artists to present their work at the PROTO Insights (organised by Tvibit) event on the 19th of October and then experience the entirety of Insomnia Festival (20th - 22nd October) - where you´ll be networking, dancing, exploring and unfolding at the city´s annual festival of electronic music and relative arts.

We look forward to hear from YOU, who has a project where technology and the arts meet. Be it a game project (analog or digital), animation or your next avant-garde masterpiece that you´re in the process of putting together, we'd love to have you with us on this adventure in Tromsø!

To qualify, please fill out the registration form here before the deadline, 1st of August 2022. Successful applicants will be informed by the 7th of August.
