OPEN CALL / RUK ART RESIDENCIES
With great pleasure, we invite international artists and creators working on the crossroads of art, science, and technology to participate in the RUK Residency programs in 2021.
RUK art residencies aim to bring together creativity and diversity of artistic approaches with groundbreaking technological businesses to contribute to critical and new understandings of technology, its ubiquitous influence, and radical potential. Moreover, one of RUK's main goals is to expand cultural and economic horizons and contribute to new knowledge production processes.
The program seeks to support artists and creators who see collaboration, a multidisciplinary approach, and experimentation as part of their working process. We are looking forward to receiving applications from passionate and dedicated artists and creators who would like to join our effort to think technology differently.
