ENCAC – European Network for Contemporary Audiovisual Creation, is a transnational research project aimed at fostering the cooperation between artists and scientists under the principles of interdisciplinarity, European intercultural exchange and the development of new audiences.
The network aims to unite complementary perspectives of its diverse European members in order to enable collaborative work among European creators in fields of sound, visual arts, performance arts, and digital culture, especially via the development of new technologies and languages at the interstices between these fields.
Taking place May 2015 – June 2017, the project will support several open calls for artistic research and projects as well as artist residencies, and the presentation of the resulting commissioned work. Training programmes and meetings for European developers are also planned. These initiatives will be hosted by the different member organisations over the course of the project. A total of 20 residencies, 12 professional workshops, 2 developer meetings, and 24 performances, installations, presentations, and seminars are planned.
Following an open call published summer 2015, 5 winning projects were supported over the fall and in 2016. The winners of the first ENCAC call for works were:
