Am pleased to hand the moderation baton to Monica
Bello over at CERN ! There has been a wonderful growth
of the number of artists in science labs residencies- I append at the
end of this email the FEAT call deadline jan 31
We are still having our critical making discussion on the YASMIN
discussion list-please contribute- and if anyone would like to moderate

---------- Forwarded message ----------
There is a call out from a EC (FET) funded project:
The call is on artist residencies in a technology/science context:
(deadline end of Jan.)
This is in line with the ideas of STARTS.
roger adds; here are the details
1. Introduction We are pleased to announce an open call for artists to
develop new work through in-depth collaborations, embedded within
research groups involved with European Union supported Future Emerging
Technologies (FET) projects through the FEAT Residency programme. The
aim of the programme is to widen public awareness and debate around
radically new technologies and to produce an artwork or body of
artwork for exhibition at significant venues. We aim to open up new
avenues of collaboration for artists and scientists and to
appropriately support projects through mentoring, advice and finance.
Five excellent applicants will be selected to work for up to nine
months with a total budget – of €18000 each – within the context and
research of FET; this may include travel costs, materials, fabrication
and artists fees. Residents will be expected to work in close
collaboration with a FET project and be in close contact with them
throughout the project included visiting and spending time with the
researchers as necessary and appropriate (to be negotiated on a
case-by-case basis) to develop concept ideas and complete an artwork
or body of artwork that responds to or extends the FET research.
Residents and collaborators will be expected to attend and participate
in a series of (at least two) workshops to present and discuss work in
progress and to ensure cross-topic and cross-project fertilization.
The FEAT Residency programme is part of the European Union Horizon
2020 supported project FEAT – Future Emerging Art and Technology, and
is a collaboration between eutema (Vienna), Waag Society (Amsterdam)
and Youris (Brussels), working with artist/curator Anna Dumitriu. The
FEAT Residency programme calls for artists with an excellent track
record of collaborative art practice and an interest in radically new
technologies in fields such as biotechnology, computing, big data,
robotics, nanotechnology, renewable fuels, or neuroscience, to enter
into collaborations with newly started FET projects in order to work
across disciplines investigating new terrains of creative expression
and artistic research. A list with descriptions of potential FET
project examples that artists may work with will be published on the
website www.feat-art.eu FEAT invites artists with an interest in these
fields to send a motivation letter, CV and a portfolio of relevant
work (PDF not exceeding 15 MB all together) to
email@example.com. Applicants are encouraged to inform
themselves of the latest rewarded FET projects to be found here.
Please be sure to read all information about the call, deadlines and
requirements detailed here before submitting an application. 2.
Deadline The deadline for applications is January 31st 2016.
