NeMe is a non profit, Cyprus registered cultural NGO founded in November 2004. NeMe focuses exclusively on non-commercial events that feature new technologies in context to emerging critical theory. We emphasise intergenerational contact within a multidisciplinary framework with the creation of extensive networks for collaboration and transnational mobility. NeMe presents events in its own space, the NeMe Arts Centre, as well as other spaces and communities in a variety of locations both in Cyprus and abroad. In addition, it hosts visiting artists and scholars at the NeMe Arts Centre as well as its Residency Space.
NeMe has been running a residency for artists, writers, scholars, and theorists since 2006. Through the years our residency guests included: Lanfranco Aceti (IT), George Alexander (AU), James Bridle (UK), Ruth Catlow (UK), Marc Garrett (UK), Srećko Horvat (HR), Sanela Jahić (SI), Ernest Larsen (US), Areti Leopoulou (GR), Garrett Lynch (IRL) (IE), Peter Lyssiotis (AU), Sherry Milner (US), Sheila Pinkel (US), Ozden Sahin (TR), Iannis Zannos (GR), and others.
The NeMe residencies for the European Media Art Platform are organized in collaboration with various labs of the Cyprus University of Technology. The artist(s) will have access to a studio located below the residency, have access to a standard PC computer, monitor, projector, LCD screen, and fibre internet access. Specialist requirements can be arranged by NeMe with the University and/or other local institutions.
NeMe favours critical media, and technologically informed arts practices and the successful artists will be expected to finish a work by the end of their two-month residency, at which time they will present the results of their research undertaken during the residency at the NeMe Arts Centre in the form of a talk or performance, screening, and/or a possible exhibition.
The residency is located at a newly renovated, two-bedroom south facing spacious apartment, in the historical Center of Limassol. The apartment is within a short walking distance to the NeMe Arts Centre, the University and a number of cultural and leisure spaces.
