Are you a startup or an artist from the media field, working with data? Are you willing to make data exploration both entertaining and informative? Do you question the impact of data and technology on individuals and society? Apply for the MediaFutures Support Program 2022.

The MediaFutures Support Program is looking for artists and startups eager to reshape the media value chain through innovative, inclusive, and participatory applications of data and user-generated content.

The Challenge

The second Open Call addresses the challenge of misinformation and disinformation. MediaFutures seeks to support novel, unconventional ways for people to engage with journalism, science, and democracy, using approaches and tools from the arts, technology, and innovation. This years’ challenge invites innovative, creative, and impactful ideas which address the issues of online misinformation and disinformation in different domains.

These ideas should help counteract the negative effects of misinformation and disinformation across society and help build trust in scientific and democratic institutions. That could mean developing software or hardware to address specific issues; artworks to highlight various aspects of them; or combinations of both. They are particularly keen to receive applications that offer new approaches to include minorities or especially affected countries.

Applications must include details on how these outcomes will be achieved during the six-month MediaFutures support program, and what impact these will have on the issue they address.
