ANAT Synapse Residencies 2021
Synapse involves Australian science organisations hosting artists in residence, leading to profound artistic and professional development for the participants, as well as building a sustainable support base for interdisciplinary creative collaboration in Australia.
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.
