AMAAS: Call for XR Residency Participants

The Alberta Media Arts Alliance Society is seeking participants interested in researching and developing eXtended Reality (XR) projects

About the Position:

We are currently looking for participants that are interested in researching and developing projects utilizing eXtended Reality (XR) technologies, to be presented at the AMAAS Media Arts Conference happening June 23 – 26, 2022 in St. Paul, Alberta.

Participants will work with a Residency Curator-Mentor that will provide mentorship throughout the 6-month residency, as well as access to XR consultants in the community that will provide specialized technical expertise. An AiR Coordinator will also be available for administrative and logistical support.

Qualifications:

Some working knowledge and experience with XR Technologies, including Virtual Reality and/or Augmented Reality Technologies is an asset. Participants can apply as individuals or as a collective/team. The position can be done remotely, as long as they are Alberta-based, with at least one trip to St. Paul, Alberta for research and project development (expenses covered).

In order to benefit a broader representation of Alberta’s media arts community, we hope that artists/collectives involved in these residencies represent a regional and cultural equity. We are dedicating at least one residency to be filled by a BIPOC artist and one from a rural area of Alberta.

To apply:

Please see the official call for artists for details on how to apply, along with a more detailed job description and qualifications.
