Last year Nokturno launched a new residency program for poets and artists using poetry in their work. We now announce an open call for the second Digital Residency in April/May 2018.
Nokturno’s Digital Residence is a virtual residency program inviting poets and artists to create digital poetry and/or explore and use digital resources as part of their practise. The residency period extends from two to four weeks in April and/or May depending on applicant’s working plan. The residency is open for poets but also artists using poetry in their work are encouraged to apply.
The poet/artist is provided with a virtual gallery/working space at Nokturno.fi and the opportunity to utilize it in for example
– Creating and releasing a new work of digital poetry
– Inviting visitors of the site to follow one’s practise via digital means
– Creating and maintaining an interactive work for the duration of the residency
– Exploring a topic related to poetry and the digital world in a digital environment open for visitors
Send us your cv and your idea, working plan, a long time dream of what your would do in a virtual residence!
The starting date and the exact duration of the residency is open for you to suggest based on your working plan. We provide technical support when needed and we don’t have any requirements for your physical location during the residency period. We also pay a compensation of thousand euros for the poet-in-residence.
Nokturno’s Digital Residency is funded by WSOY Literature Foundation. The first poet-in-residence in fall 2017 was Mikael Brygger.
