Open Call: CCA Digital Residencies – closing 3 Apr

We’re excited to announce that the submissions to our 2023 Digital Residencies are now open!

This year, we are hosting two digital residencies. We’re holding an open call for one of the digital residencies, with the other being selected by invitation.

The residency will last for one week and be updated on a dedicated webpage on, with the participant receiving an artist fee of £500 for their participation in CCA’s digital programme. We are flexible with the timeline of the residency, however it must take place before December 2023.

You can visit the archived pages of our previous digital residencies on our website

We are open to applications from artists as well as collectives or collaborations. The content of the residency does not have to fit into one category or medium; we are interested in hearing about proposals for live online events, performances, digital installations, film, resource sharing and more. We are seeking applications from artists based in or from Northern Ireland and beyond.

The residency will be curated by CCA’s Marketing and Digital Programmes Coordinator Cecelia Graham who will maintain an open line of communication between her and the artist(s) when facilitating the content for the website.
