Reshaping the media value chain through responsible and innovative uses of data

Discover how to address challenges of disinformation with our toolkit

The MediaFutures Toolkit is a resource for innovators and artists, and everyone working between business and arts. It focuses on interactions between art and AI, and how they can be used to counter misinformation. It enables the broader application of arts and trans-disciplinary STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) approaches to increase the understanding of, and participation in AI by a larger section of the public. The toolkit is driven by the expertise of the MediaFutures partners across a range of fields, and collates insights gained from our work with start-ups and artists in the MediaFutures support programme.

Throughout the programme MediaFutures is supporting 51 startups or SMEs and 43 artists. The 1st cohort graduated in September 2021, the 2nd cohort has started in April and will end with the DemoDays in Paris in October 2022, and a 3rd cohort started in November 2022 and will graduate in June 2023.

Each call has three tracks:

Track 1

Startups for Citizens

For startups to build a product or service that encourages novel, more meaningful ways to engage with media content. They will participate in a six-month Accelerator programme.

Track 2

Startup meets Artist

For teams of startups and artists to collaboratively develop new concepts of data technology and the arts.
They take part in a six-month mixed Residency and Accelerator programme.

Track 3

Artists for Media

For artists with an innovative artwork concept and production process that critically and materially explore data and technology to question and comment on its impact on individuals and society. Artists participate in a six-month Residency programme.
