MediaFutures runs a support programme for startups, SMEs and artists, selected through a total of three Open Calls and divided in three tracks: ‘Startups for Citizens’, ‘Startup meets Artist’ and ‘Artists for Media’.
The 1st cohort with 12 projects graduated in September 2021 which are presented here, including their applied data tools and their results.
The 2nd cohort has started the START phase in April 2022 with 24 projects.
5 projects selected in the ‘Artists for Media’ track joined the Artist residency programme. 7 startups in the ‘Startups for Citizens’ track, and 7 collaborative projects between startups and artists in the ‘Startup meets Artist’ track participated in the one month START phase to develop their ideas. At the end of this period they had the opportunity to pitch and 7 projects were selected for the BUILD phase: 3 in the ‘Startups for Citizens’ track and 4 in the ‘Startup meets Artist’ track which will run until September 2022. They are presented below.
At the end of the programme, participants will showcase their projects and artworks in a DemoDay in September 2022 at IRCAM in Paris and a prize of €5,000 for artists and €10,000 for startups will be awarded for the most successful contestants, following the decision of a jury.
