European Media Arts Platform (EMAP) Ι


Artists with an EU passport or based in an EU member state (regular taxpayers in one of the EU member states or in a country participating in the Creative Europe program) can apply for a two-month residency in one of the two time frames: within April and August 2020 or within January and May 2021.

EMAP/EMARE enables artists to develop their own projects within a new context, and thereby give something back, in turn, to their host organization. Each partner offers a residency programme on specific topics.


The basic purpose of the program is to enable European artists to collaborate on projects and consequently to create closer bonds between European media organizations.


Consulting by production and market experts.
