> The Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) is calling for
> applications from creative practitioners and science and research
> organisations for the 2010 Synapse Residency program. Now in its fifth
> round, the program is a core element of the Synapse initiative of the
> Australia Council of the Arts and ANAT, which enables collaboration between
> artists and scientists.
> ABOUT SYNAPSE
> Synapse supports creative partnerships between scientists and artists
> through a residency program, a database of international art/science
> collaborations and an archived discussion list and through the Australian
> Research Council (ARC) Linkage program, which supports longer-term
> partnerships between artists and scientists in academic research settings.
> Three residencies are available for Australian artists working in any
> discipline and/or medium: two Australian-based residencies of 16 weeks'
> full-time duration and one international residency of 12 weeks' full-time
> duration (part-time equivalents can be negotiated). Residencies are expected
> to take place between 1 June 2010 and 31 December 2010, however this can be
> negotiated if the project demands a different time-frame.
> 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.
> ANAT will pay participating artists a fee of $800 (AUD) per week, as well
> as accommodation, living away from home allowances and return travel to the
> destination of the residency if required. The host organisation will provide
> in-kind access to personnel, equipment, space and resources, as well as
> contributing where possible a small amount of cash towards materials and/or
> the cost of mounting a seminar/exhibition or other public outcome at the
> conclusion of the residency.
> Tertiary students, including PhD candidates, are ineligible to apply.
