Welcome to my Homepage Digital Artist Residency Program!

New to the area and need a temporary home while adjusting to cyberspace? Tired of your online persona and looking for a place to try something different? Messy project that your landlord doesn't approve of? Or maybe you're just looking for a vacation...

About The program

Welcome to my Homepage is an international online residency program hosted by IRL @ The Museum of Human Achievement that offers artists a no-cost, low-stakes opportunity to experiment and expand their practice in new directions, explore the web as a site for creative production, and reach new audiences. For visitors, the Homepage is a non-traditional art venue that encourages net.art appreciation and conversation both online and IRL. Welcome to my Homepage was founded in 2014 and has since hosted over 65 artists from across the world wide web.


Residencies occur monthly and are completely open to artist interpretation. Open calls are announced in our community MoHA Discord, Instagram, and newsletter.

No coding necessary! Welcome to my Homepage provides a user-friendly web builder in which to explore digital-studio practice, build a new body of work, host a durational performance, or whatever suits your specific project. We also provide user guides, one-on-one virtual studio visits, a $250 honorarium, and promotion for your project.

About the application

Our application asks for a Statement of Interest or Residency Proposal (300 words or less), brief Artist Statement (200 words or less), brief bio (200 words or less), your CV or resume, and work samples including up to 5 links and/or a PDF of up to 10 images. 

Who is this for?

We host residents of all sorts, but we especially like folks who haven't had an opportunity like this before, are on the verge of something new and want time to experiment, or are stuck in a rut and need an excuse to get going again.

You don't need to be a net artist or digital artist of any sort (we've hosted performers, poets, puppeteers, comedians, filmmakers, healthcare professionals, painters, sculptors, musicians, you name it).

We do want residents who pitch something that sounds fun, interesting, thoughtful, exciting, or challenging and also reasonable to complete in the relatively short 3-week time period. 

About the theme - Friendship Bracelets and other Shareware

How can we use computing as a way to express care? How is braiding a friendship bracelet or passing a note like open source software? On and offline, how do you practice radical acts of sharing?
