We are excited to announce the launch of the first edition of LEONARDO REBOOTED, a production grant created by Da Vinci Labs (France) and curated/coordinated by Quo Artis (Spain).

Da Vinci Labs will be a multi-disciplinary research centre to be built in 2022/23 in the Touraine region of France. The project aims to create an experimental space to engage critical contemporary issues and topics, and to promote the experimentation and innovation of Art & Science practices. Following this philosophy, Da Vinci Labs is launching this grant to support the production of two new artworks, the only restriction is that the final projects must be presented in digital, sound or video format, in other words, projects should not require a physical location.

This open call has two categories: Artificial Intelligence & Quantum Computing and Synthetic Biology. The selected projects (one per category) will receive 5,000 EUR to cover the production costs. No entry or administration fee is required to submit your proposal.
