ISEA2008 Call for Participation/Proposals

Artist In Residence @ National University of Singapore

The organizing committee of the International Symposium of Electronic Arts 2008 (ISEA2008) with generous support from the National University of Singapore (NUS), is soliciting proposals from New Media artists to work collaboratively with NUS centers of research and arts in preparation of work to be submitted for exhibition during the July 2008 ISEA in Singapore. Unlike previous symposia where there was a separate call for artists in residence and one of art works for exhibition, ISEA2008 will only have one call for artists' submission. The submissions selected for the AIR will also be subsequently produced and shown in the main ISEA exhibition. Submissions from countries and cultures underrepresented at other New Media venues are particularly encouraged.

Residencies of up to 3 months in duration can be supported, and must be completed before July 2008. Financial support from NUS is available for:
Economy airfare to and from the artist/designers country of residence,
University housing while the artist is in Singapore,
A monthly allowance of S$2000,
Materials cost of up to S$1000.
In addition, NUS Host Centers will provide equipment, facilities, and expertise as agreed to on a per-project basis.

Artists will have the opportunity and be expected to participate in public and academic community activities such as lectures and demonstrations during the course of their residency.
