S+T+ARTS in the City: winning artists

October 17, 2023

S+T+ARTS in the City is a S+T+ARTS residencies programme that invites the artists to address the challenges that European regions face today. The programme aims to produce artworks that combine art and technology in a creative and functional way, and that offer solutions to real-life problems in various sectors, such as green manufacturing, sustainable urban development, security, recyclable textiles, digital literacy, and more.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the open call who were carefully selected from 166 applications from 35 countries.

S+T+ARTS In the City will support these 11 artists through 5 Regional S+T+ARTS Centers‘programme that includes a 9-month residency starting in October 2023, as well as multiple exhibitions and events during the residency period and thereafter until November 2024.
