Short history:
1995 the European Media Artists in Resicence Exchange (EMARE) was initiated by werkleitz, Hull Time Based Arts and Intermedia Department Budapest.
The ongoing residency exchange had various partners and members during the years. In 2007 the European Media Art Network (EMAN) was founded as institutional backbone for the EMARE program.
In 2007 and 2008 EMAN received support from the European Union's 'Culture 2007–2013' programme to organise a series of residencies for European artists as part of the residency programmes of the four EMAN members. In 2012 and 2013 the EU supported an exchange of European and Mexican artists for residencies at the four European EMAN members and media art labs in Mexico. For 2014 and 2015 EMAN received similar EU funding to organise a residency exchange for artists from Europe, Canada and Australia.
In 2017 newly founded EMAP (European Media Art Platform) has started to offer grants in 11 member institutions all over Europe.

The three EU fundings for these activities resulted in the move exhibitions and werkleitz festival series in Halle:
2018 EMAN expands to 11 European countries and transforms with the help of the Creative Europe funds into EMAP!
