Budget and deadline

Deadline for applying for both open calls: October 2nd
Who can apply?
Cross-TIC aims to support cross-media makers who have a connection to Twente (meaning that makers either live, work, study or have graduated in this region). Visual artists, designers, new media developers and other creatives are invited to apply to a production trajectory in which they will develop new cross-media works with a strong Technology, Innovation and Creativity component. In developing their project, they are offered guidance, expertise and support that will help them refine and realize their work. The Cross-TIC production will be presented to a regional audience through the Maakplaatsen.
Cross-TIC is carried out by nine core partners from Twente: Library Almelo & Theater Hof 88, Kunsten op Straat, Oyfo, PLANETART, Schouwburg Hengelo, Theater Sonnevanck, Stichting Oldenzaalse Musea, Concordia, and Tetem. The project is supported by the Province of Overijssel and the 14 municipalities that together form the Twente Culture Region. Visit cross-tic.nl for more information.
