Residency  program for Web art production for the series Spoken Screen

SUBMISSION DEADLINE : January 31, 2014

Agence TOPO, an Montreal-based artist-run centre for new media, launches a new call for projects for its series Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen. This program, initiated in 2007 with the NT2 Lab (University of Quebec in Montréal), presents hypermedia works that incorporate a performative aspect and which explore the links between the screen and the off-screen space: poetry readings and interpretations, participative performances, interactive devices, etc.

Like previous editions, we will consider all proposals of works comprising a narrative and performative dimension that fosters visual, audio and textual exploration, both in its physical and on-screen aspects.

In order to respect the foreseen deadlines, projects currently under development and those demonstrating a strong commitment from the artists will be given priority. The selected artists and projects will benefit from technical support for a period of 4 to 12 weeks within a residency program that can be spread out over time depending on the artists’ needs and specific project requirements. The proposed work timetable is for 2014 and 2015.

Artists interested in this theme, and by the production context offered by Agence TOPO are encouraged to submit their proposals before January 31, 2014.

– Project proposal
– Description of technical needs
– Description of artistic approach
– Curriculum vitae (3 pages max.)- Press kit (3 pages max.)
