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

open call

During three Open Calls, we select startup ideas and creative projects to participate in the MediaFutures support programme.

Each call has three tracks:

Track 1

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.

Track 2

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 3

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.

The 2nd Open Call has closed and is currently under evaluation.

The 1st Open Call closed in January 2021 (see results) and the selected projects

(see here) concluded the support programme.

A 3rd Open Call will open in June 2022. More information will follow soon.
