Agora Digital Art Residency




Open Call for self-identified Women Artists working in New Media and XR

The Residency Lab is a digital residency opened to self-identified women artists, working in New Media Art with XR (AI, AR, MR, ML, VR, etc), challenging, exploring and engaging on the dis/embodiment, transhumanism and gender fluidity.

The Residency Lab is also a springboard to create a new project and to test new practices in a VR Mozilla Hubs venue.

That venue link belongs to the artist. You can continue developing your project after the residency. It is meant to invite people in such as curators, gallerists or collectors, to view your solo show.


How does it work?

Agora Digital Art will support and facilitate your creative process for the entire journey, with your designated curator.

What we offer today is curatorial support, plus networking opportunities. We also develop your residency page, produce a talk and do a “studio visit” after the residency. And, as a final boost Agora Digital Art creates a massive social media promotion campaign for you.

The objective of the residency is to start or to continue a project, in view to exhibit min. one artwork in a permanent virtual exhibition, in Mozilla Hubs.


Digital Art Residency Lab

  • Periods starting in 2021:  Opening for September to December
  • Application deadline:  on the 27th of each month 
  • Duration of the residency: one month
  • Outputs: a virtual exhibition in Mozilla Hubs (solo show), your Artist page, Interview or article, Agora Talk and social media promotion campaign. 


About you

  • You are a self-identifying woman or non-binary digital artist (She/Her or They/Them) or in a group including 50% women artists.
  • You have easy access to Internet.
  • You are min. aged 23 at the moment of your residency.
  • You do speak well enough in English.
  • You are committed to dedicating time and research during your residency.
  • You are willing to document your residency in a Live “Studio Visit” in a 121 zoom.
  • You are available for any content Agora will produce about you: interview, podcast or talk.
  • You work in New Media and XR (AI, AR, MR, ML, VR, etc)
  • Please prepare: 200-word max biography, 300-word Artist Statement, 500-word Project Proposal, plus social media and your website link.
  • The artists hold full intellectual property rights and control of the final piece they create and the venue in Mozilla Hubs.


  • Is the Residency Lab paid? Since we are a young organisation, unfortunately, the Residency Lab is unpaid. We need to find a sponsor – hopefully soon. But Agora Digital Art does a lot of marketing promotion on- and off-line.
  • Who will be my curator? Agora Digital Art is a volunteer-based organisation, it will depend on the curators’ team availability and interest.
  • I have no project idea, can I apply? The Residency Lab is to help you to test new things. So, it’s better to start with a clear basis because one month is not that long to produce new artworks – depending on what you want to achieve.
  • I’m not in the age range, can I apply? Sorry, but you should be confirmed as 23 years old during your residency. If you’re too young, wait until you reach 23 years old.
