DEADLINE: Febreuary 14, 2012

From ANAT:

“The Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) is calling for applications from artists and science and research organisations for the 2012 Synapse Residency program. Now in its seventh 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 with a demonstrated interest in science working in any discipline and/or medium. Australian-based residencies of 16 weeks’ duration that take place during the 2012 calendar year will be supported.

To ensure a good fit between the artist and host organisation, a joint application must be submitted. It is the responsibility of the project partners to establish contact and to identify the nature of the proposed collaboration prior to application. Those with existing relationships are strongly encouraged to apply. 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.
