Blitz Valletta’s Digital Residency is open to highly motivated individuals from all artistic disciplines, including (but not limited to) new media, digital platforms, film, photography, performance, painting, sound, architecture, electronic music, installation, and will be selected through a competitive open call. Selected applicants must have recently graduated (2017 onwards) from an arts-related postgraduate degree and are requested to present a proposal for an original artwork to be produced and exhibited on the digital platform OPEN, dedicated to Blitz’s digital programme of exhibitions, talks and activities.
The residency will include a research and production phase of approximately one month. The production phase will be followed by the launch of the proposed new artwork, which will be exhibited online for a minimum of two months. Public engagement is crucial to the residency programme, taking the form of virtual open studios, a workshop and/or a talk for a community of artists, researchers, educators, professionals and students. All these activities will be performed virtually and must form part of the applicant’s proposal.
Blitz Valletta is offering three online residencies for the duration of three months each, starting February 2022, June 2022 and October 2022. One of the three residencies is exclusive to a Maltese artist.
Blitz Valletta has dedicated a budget of €2,000 for each successful applicant, which includes an artist fee of €500 and a production budget for the artwork proposed in the application. The artwork must be original.
