DAR logo

OVADA, in association with Digital Artist Residency Curator Tom Milnes, are pleased to announce a new and exciting collaboration between our organisations. This page outlines the DAR project and a link at the bottom of the page takes you to the dedicated DAR website where you can find out more and explore previous and ongoing commissions.

Digital Artist Residency is an online platform which provides space for artists to create and display new artwork. The initiative aims to provide support for artwork created using digital processes, exploring the boundaries of art and technology.

Culture and society are being increasingly influenced by digital technolgies, which is why we support artists who work with these concepts and create a discourse of around current understanding of digital media.
We believe in a critical engagement in art and technology. Providing support and online space for artists to develop processes which do not require a physical space and work within digital or online contexts.

Emerging Artists in Residence (EAiR)

We are delighted to have received Arts Council England funding through their Grants for the Arts programme. The funding will be used to support four emerging digital artists selected by open call. We are excited to announce that these artists are: Abigail Fletcher-DryeWill KendrickAaron McCarthy and Jules Varnedoe. To mark the end of their residency the artists took part in the exhibition, Touching, not touching at OVADA in July 2017.
