Factory Berlin x Sónar+D’s Artist in Residence program is supported by Beats by Dr. Dre.
The Residency supports artists exploring new lines of inquiry intersecting technology & society. We aim to discover, explore and showcase how creativity impacts innovation, problem-solving, work culture, how we collaborate, and how we come together as a community.

Join an empowering network of over 4000 creators and innovators
During their time on the residency artists collaborate, and craft installations and exhibitions, such as our By Appointment Only series. They perform, create, and exchange with the wider Factory Berlin community.
Community changes the way we work.
The aim of the program is to facilitate dialog, partnership, and collaboration at the intersection of technology and exploratory arts. By focusing on this synthesis, the program empowers artists to create work which inspires shifts in perspective and cross-collaboration.
