ANAT is calling for applications from creative practitioners and science and research organisations for the 2011 Synapse Residency program. Now in its sixth round, the program is a core element of the Synapse initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts and ANAT, which supports collaboration between artists and scientists. The residencies are open to Australian artists with a demonstrated interest in science working in any discipline and/or medium. Domestic residencies of 16 weeks’ duration and/or international residencies of 12 weeks’ duration that take place during the 2011 calendar year will be supported.
To ensure a good fit between the artist and host organisation, a joint application must be submitted. It is the responsibility of the project partners to establish contact and to identify the nature of the proposed collaboration prior to application. Those with existing relationships are strongly encouraged to apply. The Synapse residencies have a creative research focus and it is not expected that they will result in the production of new work. The residencies may also be approached as a platform for testing and informing a more comprehensive, longer‐term research project suitable for submission to the ARC Synapse Linkage program.
Deadline for applications is 5pm, Friday 25 February 2011.
