A week-long, in-person residency in which artists will explore how to adapt their collage practice to game design or incorporate games and play as a theme in their artwork.

Virtual Sessions: Monday, 26 August 2024, 4-6PM EDT and Monday, 9 September 2024, 4-6PM EDT
In-Person: 10AM on Monday, 16 September to 4PM on Friday, 20 September 2024

Deadline to Apply: Sunday, 18 August 2024
Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis until space is filled. Artists are encouraged to apply well before the deadline.

Games are an incredible tool for storytelling, worldbuilding, and social engagement. In this residency, we will explore the history of collage and games, gaming and play as a theme for artwork, and brainstorm and workshop our ideas together. We will have dedicated time for playtesting them with each other as well as with gamers who are not artists in order to get feedback from varied sources. We will talk about collage as art assets and illustrations for games, games that use collage as a mechanic, and game diffusion models.

We are looking for artists who either want to create their own game that relies heavily on collage, create collage that is meant to illustrate a game, or create artwork that uses games and play as a central theme. Artists will leave the residency with a plan for finishing and distributing their games or artwork. At Kolaj Fest New Orleans 2025 residency artists will be invited to debut their games.
