Starting in May 2023, the NRW Forum will award three virtual residencies for one month each to artists working with virtual reality and other digital art forms. The artists are invited to experiment in the virtual environment, actively shape it, and create new digital artworks. Each residency gives time and space for artistic research, exhibiting the results and a final event at wwwforum.

At the beginning there will be a technical onboarding with the platform JourneeX. A production budget of 1,000 € will be paid for each residency. To apply, please submit via a short text and visuals about your own artistic work as well as questions and ideas to be explored during the virtual residency. The application deadline is April 30, 2023.

The selection of the artists for the virtual residencies will be made jointly by the NRW-Forum, Studio Christian Mio Loclair and the community.
