ANAT is calling for applications from artists and scientists/researchers for the prestigious Synapse Residency program. Now in its eighth 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 working in any discipline and/or medium. Residencies shall take place over 16 weeks full-time (or part-time equivalent) during the 2014 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. Those with existing relationships are strongly encouraged to apply.
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.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 5PM (CDT), FRIDAY 7th of FEBRUARY 2014
Guidelines, including an application cover sheet, can be downloaded at http://www.anat.org.au/2013/11/call-for-applications-2014-synapse-residencies/
This is a highly competitive program. We encourage you to discuss your project proposal with us prior to the deadline. To do so, or for more information about the residencies, please contact:
