International Media Arts Collaboratory Residency

Call for Applications

The International Media Arts Collaboratory is a two-week group residency. The collaboratory is considered as a relational platform in which media arts specialists from around the world come together to collaborate among themselves and/or with the local community in the creation and appreciation of media arts for knowledge sharing and cross-fertilization of skills. The media arts are defined broadly to include the diversity of recording and presentation modes (such as photography, film/video arts, and the territory of digital arts created for gallery exhibition, television, newspaper, billboard, radio, Internet, even architectural structures) that integrate digital technologies with traditional use of images and text to convey symbolism, codes and context contained and projected through audio-visual instruments. Participants will live and work together in the arts village or homestay in the rural township. Project welcomes individual or team proposals involving artistic production, or theoretical presentations on how media arts contribute to the global marketplace of ideas. The theme is open. There are two residencies:

  • 17-31 May 2012 - Abetenim Arts Village near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana
  • 2-16 November 2012 - Sang Arts Village, Sang near Tamale in Northern Region of Ghana

The organizers suggest that participants apply for travel grants through their national art councils or other sources.
