Two residencies are usually available per year. This is not a production award, but artists in residency will usually be expected to develop projects on site. Applications for residencies in1996/7 are due 31st October 1996. Artec also gives facility support to artists when possible for ongoing projects and research projects in development.

Peter Ride <email@example.com> Leonardo project Multimedia Learning Resource Centre The Leonardo Project is a collaboration between Artec in UK, FAS in Ireland, AKK in Finland and Stavroupoli in Greece. It is an ambitious two year project that looks at the multimedia industries in the four countries involved to examine the context and provision of multimedia training. It utilises the expertise of Artec trainers in helping to provide a model of training that can be used Europe-wide. This involves exchanges between the trainers and the production of learning materials that can be used in different countries and over the internet. FAS is co-ordinating the project and has linked with University College Dublin to enable use of the West software that they have developed which delivers training over the internet and enables discussion between tutor and student. The final vision for this project will be to have a 'Virtual Learning City' where anyone can find out where courses are provided in multimedia by looking at the Multimedia Coursefinder (only available for the UK at the moment). They will be able to interrogate a database of training information, course documents, analyses of strategies for learning. Eventually we hope to have a complete exchange which will include matching employers with multimedia professionals and a comprehensive overview of the multimedia industries, which will help us to define the most relevant multimedia training.
