ANAT Synapse 2021 : Applications open now
February 17, 2021
ANAT (Australian Network for Art and Technology) is calling for applications from artists and scientists for our prestigious Synapse Residency program, which, since 2004, has enabled research collaborations between more than 100 artists and scientists.
ANAT Synapse involves Australian science organisations hosting artists in residence, leading to profound artistic and professional development for the participants, while also building a sustainable support base for interdisciplinary creative collaboration in Australia.
ANAT Synapse brings artists and scientists together in research partnerships that generate new knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial to both fields. A distinguishing feature of the residencies is their creative research focus, with applicants dissuaded from anticipating specific outcomes at the outset.
Residencies take place over 16 weeks full-time, the equivalent part-time, or, in discrete blocks over a longer duration during 2021*. ANAT will pay participating artists a fee of $4,400 per month (or part-time equivalent) and contribute towards project material costs, accommodation expenses and return travel to the destination of the residency if required. The host organisation will provide in-kind access to staff, equipment, space and resources, and will assist with disseminating outcomes at the conclusion of the residency.
