The Summer Sessions are short-term international art and technology residencies for emerging artists and designers. A network of cultural organisations all over the world sponsors and hosts the residencies. Every summer they offer early-career artists and designers support so they can take part in production residencies abroad. Each Summer Sessions residency lasts approximately eight weeks and takes place between July and September. During this period you will develop your project from concept to presentable work, ready to show.
Artists and designers working with art and technology are eligible to apply if they (1) are under the age of 35 and/or have graduated within the past five years and (2) live in a country where there is a Summer Sessions sponsoring partner. There are sponsoring institutions in the Netherlands, Taiwan, Spain, Austria, Russia, China, South Korea, Croatia, Belgium and Austria.
Selected artists will receive access to the facilities of the host institution, expert support and an opportunity to present the resulting work at a public event. A budget will be provided to cover travel, accommodation, materials and a stipend.
