    The resident artist / designer will receive a €2000 budget wich includes: €1250 artist fee and €750 materials budget), a space to work and 2 venues to exhibit ( DDW @ Plug-in-City / 22-30 October 2016 and and Economia Festival @ Natlab, 20-22 January 2017).

    We encourage you to apply before August 31st, 2016.

    Economia is a three day festival in which we collectively explore new ideas and thinking about our economy. The event is a laboratory for ideas, a place where we can step out of the existing frame. The aim of the festival is to approach economics in new ways and look at our economic system and society with the detached view of the visitor, researcher, gamer, alien and artist. We want to reclaim economy as a social/cultural structure that we created, ridding us of the idea of economics as an inevitable law of nature.
