Digital Artist Residency (DAR) is an online platform which provides a space for artists to develop ideas and display new artwork. The initiative aims to provide support for artwork created using digital processes, exploring the boundaries of art and technology.

DAR is looking for proposals for projects and works which respond to the interaction and the understanding of various digital themes. We are interested in projects that deal with research interactions between digital, online spaces and/or their physical materiality. Artists would need to communicate clearly how these works would be appropriate for DAR’s online context. DAR is accepting proposals from practitioners who work with site specific practices which may include performance, sculpture, film, video, New media, video, Sonic art, live works and cross-disciplinary practices. We are also interested in artists working with exclusively online practices too. Groups may apply as well as individuals.

The residencies are open to emerging artists and recent graduates working in any discipline and/or medium responding to digital themes, and from anywhere in the world. Chosen artists must submit at least one post onto DAR’s website per week.


DAR provides: 

·      A page on DAR’s website which on average attracts 5000 viewers each month. This page normally takes the style of a blog, but artists are encouraged to be ambitious with any specific ideas about how they want their work presented. Write these ideas on your project proposal and we can discuss how they can be realised. 

·      Technical support in achieving the aims of the online residency. 

·      Support and promotion for the artist and their work through its network. 

·      A permanent web archive of work produced during the residency and photographic documentation of the exhibition at OVADA.

·      Promotion and mentoring
