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 at: http://www.anat.org.au/2017-synapse-residencies-now-open/

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:
