ANAT & the Australian Wine Research Institute Artist’s Residency
Ask not what wine has done for you but rather what you can do for wine

Do you feel as though your practice could benefit with some breathing space? Would you consider your arts practice and a residency at the Australian Wine Research Institute a great blend?

The Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) is excited to announce a new art + science residency in partnership with the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), based in Adelaide.

The AWRI is the Australian grape and wine industry’s research organisation. It supports a sustainable and successful grape and wine industry through world-class research, practical solutions and knowledge transfer. The AWRI will host the residency at the Wine Innovation Cluster based in Urrbrae, Adelaide, with the successful artist to work with the AWRI’s flavour chemistry and sensory research teams, led by Dr Leigh Francis. The AWRI’s contribution to the residency is substantial and includes research staff, facilities, materials and the provision of an external sensory panel and consumer study.

Who can apply?
The residency is open to Australian artists working in any discipline and/or medium, with the residency to take place over 12 weeks full-time (or part-time equivalent) between April and December 2019.

Since 2004, ANAT has brought artists and scientists together in research partnerships that have generated new knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial to both fields.

Residencies have involved Australian science organisations hosting artists in situ, leading to profound artistic and professional development for the participants, as well as building a sustainable support base for interdisciplinary creative collaboration in Australia.
