GRIN is now looking for artists to explore the development of solutions that can address the digital and ecological transition in Europe. The GRIN residencies are focused on addressing four main themes, which include Green and Blue Infrastructure, Circular Solutions, Climate Neutrality, and Well-Being and Sustainable Living.

The themes are further divided into specific topics for each region:

  • GRIN Residencies in Linz, Austria: Hatred on the internet, The Climate Crisis, Well-Being of young people.
  • GRIN Residencies in Bologna, Italy: Supercomputing, Quantum and Digital Twin.
  • GRIN Residencies in Porto, Portugal – AR Contemporary Theatre.

  • GRIN Residencies in Oulu, Finland – Sound and Print.

Artists who are interested in applying for the GRIN residencies can select a specific topic and region for their project proposals, with residencies hosted by local GRIN partners.

The aim of the residencies is to produce an art-driven experiment of stimulating the uptake of digital technologies, either by EU citizens and companies, to address social, business and sustainability challenges. Outcomes of the residencies should represent a technical demonstrator of the technology proposed, coupled with the artistic demonstrator of the novel usage scenario proposed by the artist.

The final result would be an artwork in the form of an artistic demonstration e.g. performance, video, sculpture, immersive experience, digital artistic assets.

12 artists will be selected for six-month residencies. Funding per artist is 40,000 EUR.
