2024 ANAT Synapse residency program :: Call for Applications

Dates or Deadline: 
8 September 2023 to 16 November 2023


2024 ANAT Synapse residency program :: Call for Applications


In 2024, the ANAT Synapse residency program will turn 20!


ANAT is now calling for applications to the program and welcomes submissions from Australian artists who work in any genre with conceptual aims that intersect and deeply engage with science and/or technology.


The program brings artists and researchers together in partnerships that generate new knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial beyond both fields. A distinguishing feature of the residencies is their creative research focus, with applicants supported in collaborative experimentation rather than anticipating or producing specific outcomes.


The successful artist will undertake the residency in 2024 across 16 weeks full time (or the part time equivalent).


To ensure suitability between the artist and host organisation, a joint application must be submitted, led by the artist. It is the responsibility of the artist to identify the nature of the proposed research collaboration and establish a dialogue with their intended host prior to application.




Deadline for applications: 3pm (ACDT), Thursday 16 November 2023

Notification of outcome: December 2023

Residency period: Between February and October 2024


We are excited to offer the 20th ANAT Synapse residency program in 2024. ANAT has listened to its network and has opened the call period well in advance of the residency being undertaken. This will allow artists more time to engage with their intended host researchers and plan their time ahead for the following year.
