CALL] REMINDER :: 2011 SYNAPSE RESIDENCIES NOW OPEN :: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

DEADLINE :: 5PM FRIDAY 25 FEBRUARY 2011

The Australian Network for Art & Technology (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 of 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 calendar year will be supported. 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

For further information, contact Vicki Sowry, ANAT program manager vicki@anat.org.au
