This residency call is looking for projects involving : art, mobility, culture and audience participation. This might be of interest to some mobile sound artists so here is more detail from their website:

Call for Proposals: Shared Artist-in-Residence NIMk, Kitchen Budapest, Pervasive Media Studio & 5daysoff: Deadline extended to 20 November!

5daysoff, Pervasive Media Studio, Kitchen Budapest and NIMk launch an open call for a cross-European residency program.We’re looking for interesting artists seeking time and space to research, produce and present projects at the intersection of art, mobility and culture involving audience participation. The program will support early stage ideas that utilise pervasive technologies and free/open source software. This is a valuable opportunity to explore process and develop experimental works within four unique collaborative environments to be presented in public space and/or festival environments.

New Deadline is 20 November 2010.

5days off 2011 will feature an exhibition that focuses on art works questioning and examining new production methods: projects that were produced using online means for production and creation of content such as crowd sourcing, that challenge the notion of artists as single creator or author of a work and experiment with notions of co-authorship and co-creation by e.g. involving others, knowingly or unconsciously in the development of a work.

In this context, we are particularly interested in projects that deal with the theme of mobility and involve the audience as co-creators in public space in a playful, dynamic or performative way by using mobile, wireless or sensory technologies in innovative and surprising ways. We are looking for projects that trigger individual actions/experiences that lead to a unique collective experience. Communication towards and participation of the audience is crucial. The project is situated in the context of electronic pop culture.

Projects will be developed during the period of December 2010 until May 2011. During this period beta tests will happen at 5daysoff in Amsterdam and at Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol. The 5daysoff festival takes place between 2-6 March 2011, and its exhibition from 18 February to 29 April 2011. The final work will be presented at a public festival.

The residency will be hosted by four European organisations: Kitchen Budapest, NIMk, 5daysoff/Melkweg and Pervasive Media Studio. Time will need to be spent at each location and the organizations will provide targeted support (in the form of resources, space, technical support, local context and time) relevant to each stage of project development.
