Ada X


Ada X’s residencies offer artists opportunities to experiment and create a new work in media arts. For a period of eight weeks, resident artists have access to a studio space and equipment. They receive a residency fee in accordance with Le Repaire’s media arts dissemination guidelines, as well as a production budget to cover professional fees for technical assistance and/or materials directly related to the residency project. The center also offers the possibility to showcase the work developed during a public presentation, and opportunities to design and offer an educational activity for young audiences (with additional fees paid). For now, Ada X residency program is open to artists living in the Greater Montreal area only.

Ada X supports proposals that address the interactions between gender, race, accessibility, and technology, from an intersectional feminist perspective. They value proposals that promote digital literacy and democratization (open source software, ethical practices, accessibility of tools).
