2015 Synapse Residencies – Call for Applications
ANAT is calling for applications from artists and scientists/researchers for the prestigious Synapse Residency program. Now in its ninth 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 2015 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 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.
Guidelines, including an application cover sheet, can be downloaded from www.anat.org.au
Deadline for Applications is 5pm (CDT), Monday 16 February, 2015.
