Call for Projects

Ada X regularly launches calls for proposals for its programming, its residencies, and festival. Successful projects are chosen by a jury composed of members of the organization’s programming committee. Stay tuned!


Ada X’s residencies offer artists opportunities to experiment and create a new work (e.g. digital art, installation or performance). For a period of six weeks, resident artists have access to a private workstation within a shared work area. Residents receive an artist fee, and enjoy free access to Ada X equipment and workshops. The works produced during the residencies are presented to the public. For a look at past residencies, click here.

Programming (Events and Workshops)

We are looking for digital art projects that are creative, critical, witty, weird and poetic for our public events and/or our workshops. We seek proposals from artists who identify as women, non-binary, trans or queer, as well as from curators, activists, collectives and community organizations.
Examples of media / formats: net art, electronic art, audio, video, installation, bio art, public interventions, practices rooted in the community, performances, workshops, discussions and round tables – or something so out there that we haven’t even heard of it… For a look at different types of programming events at Ada X, click here.

HTMlles Festival

Ada X launches a thematic call for proposals for HTMlles Festival every two years. For a look at previous editions, click here.
