Call for artistic residencies VERTIGO STARTS

10th january – 2nd march 2018

Are you an artist or creative? Have the chance of getting a grant of up to 30.000€ for collaborating with an R&D ICT-Project and producing an original artwork based on its technology!

LABoral is part of the artistic network of VERTIGO STARTS. This program organises collaborations between artists and R+D ICT projects.

The call is open to artists willing to collaborate with partners of an R&D ICT-Project in order to develop, in particular through the production of an original artwork based on its technology, a fresh approach to its innovation challenges.

The application platform will open on January 10th and will close on March 2nd 2018 (15:00 CET)

Application process

Choose the R&D ICT-Project you want to collaborate with from a list of available projects;
Present your artistic work including your bio and selected works;
Describe the artwork you propose to produce for the selected R&D ICT-Project and its production workplan;
Should you need additional resources other than those provided by the grant or/and by the R&D ICT-Project, you may apply with a third-party (Producer) committed to support your artistic production. The arrangements must be agreed in advance between the Artist and the Producer so that they apply together to the residency call. A starting list of institutions open to collaborating with artists is provided here. This list is not exhaustive: artists can apply with a Producer of their choice not present in the list.

Selection process

An international and interdisciplinary jury will review the applications received. The announcement of laureate residencies will be made in June 2018.


All parties involved in a selected residency will sign a co-production contract.
Residencies will start from September 2018 and their process will be followed by a VERTIGO partner.
Upon completion, VERTIGO will contribute to the public exposure of the produced artworks and other residencies’ outcomes through its dissemination channels, including the online platform, a yearly public event at Centre Pompidou and the Network of Artistic Correspondents.
