CultureHub supports Resident Artists concerned with specific technological challenges. Resident Artists utilize the Micro-Residency program which provides one week of access to the CultureHub studio, equipment, and support staff to focus on artistic and technological innovation. Resident Artists present media arts projects at various stages of development, conduct media arts related workshops, and hone their curatorial practices.
