Mia has received a grant to host one of four NDSR Art Residents in 2017-2018. Residents will complete digital stewardship projects on-site at their host institution. NDSR Art residencies run for 12 months, from August 1, 2017 to late July 2018, preceded by a week-long training period in Philadelphia. The program contains many opportunities for professional development including ongoing workshops, lectures, special events, and other activities with the residency cohort. Residents will work with mentors at their host institution and local ARLIS/NA chapters. To get a sense of what it is like to participate as a resident, we recommend blogs created by the current AAPB cohort; past NDSR-NY and NDSR-Boston cohorts; the Library of Congress. For more information on the timeline of NDSR Art, please visit the Timeline page on the NDSR Art website.
Mia’s NDSR Art Resident will take a lead role in helping the museum enhance our capacity to acquire, manage, preserve and provide access to our digital art collections over time; recommend technical solutions for management and preservation; and oversee the initial implementation of the new policies, procedures and systems, using our existing collections as a test-bed. They will build on the work of leaders in the field (Matters in Media Art, the Smithsonian Time-Based Media Art Working Group), ensuring all solutions are appropriate to Mia’s scale. In the final stage of their residency, the Resident will train Mia staff to carry forward what they have helped put in place. For full details, see Mia’s project description on the NDSR Art website.
