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.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Residencies are open to Australian artists working in any discipline and/or medium, with the residencies to take place over 16 weeks full-time, which can also be undertaken part-time or in discrete blocks over a longer duration during 2020.
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 research collaboration prior to application.
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.
Tertiary students, including PhD candidates, are ineligible to apply if the proposed residency in any way contributes to the achievement of an academic qualification.
Applicants must read the guidelines before applying
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 5PM (ACDT), WEDNESDAY 19th FEBRUARY 2020.
