ANAT’s program is informed by comprehensive research into technologies and processes with the potential to inform and transform creative practice – and then providing opportunities for Australian artists to engage with these over a two-three year period.
2017 Synapse Residencies Now Open
ANAT is calling for applications from artists and scientists/researchers for the prestigious Synapse Residency program. The program is a core element of the Synapse initiative, which, since 2004, has supported collaboration between artists and scientists.
The residencies are open to Australian artists working in any discipline and/or medium. Residencies shall take place over 16 weeks full-time (or part-time equivalent) during the 2017 calendar year.
To ensure a good fit between the artist and host organisation, a joint application must be submitted. It is the responsibility of the applicants to establish contact and to identify the nature of the proposed collaboration prior to application.
The 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 longer-term research project suitable for submission to the ARC Synapse Linkage program.
Guidelines, including an application cover sheet, can be downloaded here.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 5PM (CST), MONDAY 27th FEBRUARY 2017
This is a highly competitive program; as such, it is recommended that you discuss your project proposal with us prior to application. To do so, or for more information about the residencies, please contact:
