In its second round, the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) is funding cooperative media art & digital culture projects by institutions and independent initiatives in NRW with a total volume of 520,000 EUR.
Developed in cooperation with the network and supervised by the office

institutions and initiatives, alliances and collectives, places and spaces of media art & digital culture, whose cooperative projects deal artistically and culturally with contemporary technological/media change and its effects on society.

We consider media art to be an interdisciplinary artistic practice – submissions from e.g. visual arts, film, music, performance, theatre and cultural education to newer media forms such as virtual reality and hybrid spaces are also very welcome.
Interested parties can apply for one of two funding programs, depending on their objective:

Total funding: 120,000 euro
1 institution or independent initiative in NRW + 1 fellow from outside NRW jointly develop a research pro- ject in the thematic area of art, technology, and society (e.g. with an expert from the field of curatorial prac- tice, media art, activism, research, journalism, education as a fellow).

Deadline for project proposals: FEBRUARY 15, 2022

Total funding: 400,000 euro
