Residencies with European Digital Deal

European Digital Deal calls on artists interested in exploring the deep entanglement between new technologies and democracy to apply for one of 12 residencies.  

Artists are invited to investigate a range of topics, from the notion of truth in the information age shaped by algorithms, biases in AI, techno-anxiety, and the digital divides arising as a result of digitalisation to new forms of surveillance, intelligence, living, citizenship, or work.  

The selected artists will receive a 25.000 EUR grant to complete their project, the support of the group of experts around each residency, access to mentorship through an incubation programme, and the chance to show their work at Ars Electronica Festival, Onassis Stegi, and Laboral among many other locations.   

Artists interested in applying can join us on the 6th of November, 3 PM CET, for a short presentation of the open call, followed by Q&A sessions with the residency hosts/consortium partners.
Update: We are now at capacity and will not take any more registrations for the session on the 6th of November. The recording of the session will be available online in the days after.

Guide for Applicants


This year’s Ars Electronica Festival hosted the European Digital Deal Summit – a series of workshops in which experts from different cultures, backgrounds, and disciplines unpacked some of the topics we tackle in the project and came up with research questions. Their ideas and questions are a great source of inspiration. Check out the interviews and the final presentation of the Digital Deal Summit!
