The European Media Art Platform (EMAP), initiated by werkleitz and co-funded by Creative Europe since 2018, is a consortium of 15 leading European media art organizations specialised in Digital and Media Art, Bio Art and Robotic Art. The consortium includes several renowned festivals dealing with these interdisciplinary art forms. Through an open call, EMAP members offer practitioners two-month residencies built on the legacy of the European Media Artist in Residence Exchange (EMARE) which exists since 1995. EMAP also acts as a marketplace for Partners to select artists and works for their own festivals and exhibitions. In addition to production support for artists, EMAP provides an international platform to promote and disseminate the work of media artists.
The residency is based on intercultural and interdisciplinary knowledge exchange between the selected artists, host organizations and various experts from science, arts and technology involved to consult, support or train the artists. Each member host provides an artist grant, travel expenses, production budget, paid accommodation during the residency and access to labs and facilities. Events include solo exhibitions and group shows, on- and offline conferences and capacity building workshops to share knowledge. Some of the results are published in the section shared knowledge.
Artists can submit project proposals for the open calls.
