Alongside this targeted focus on emerging technologies, we also deliver an ongoing program encouraging collaborations between artists, scientists and researchers through the Synapse Initiative, presented in partnership with the Australian Council for the Arts since 2004.

Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different ways and from different perspectives; when working together they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us.

The Synapse Initiative comprises a residency program, a database of international art/science collaborations, and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage program, which supports longer-term partnerships between artists and scientists in academic research settings.
