Next to the EMAP Members there are several partner institutions outside of Europe with which the network cooperates closely. This offers a unique change for even further cultural exchange for artists within but also outside of Europe. As this partnerships depend on funding, some of them are temporarily. But in some cases, EMAP is able to contain the relationships at least on bilateral levels.
2012/13 EMAN (the predecessor of EMAP) exchanged artists in residence with two partners in Mexico. Within the EMARE MEX program there is an ongoing exchange between Centro Multimedia and Werkleitz where German and Mexican based media artists are elligible to apply.
2014/15 there was an exchange with three partners in Australia and three in Canada where also Australian and Canadian artist participated.
After the exchange in 2016 had been realised among the European core members and HEK Basel, in 2017 newly founded EMAP has started to offer grants in eleven member institutions all over Europe.
