    A vital focus of the work and practice is interdisciplinary partnerships and collaboration.

    ANAT Synapse Residency Program Overview

    ANAT Synapse involves Australian research organisations hosting artists in residence, leading to profound artistic and professional development for the participants, while also building a sustainable support base for interdisciplinary creative collaboration in Australia. 

    ANAT Synapse 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. 

    The call for applications to the ANAT Synapse 2024 Residency program is now open. Visit our website for more information.

    ANAT Bespoke Residency Program Overview

    In addition to the prestigious Synapse program, ANAT delivers bespoke artist’s residencies, with science, technology and research partners from the academic and private sectors. As the name suggests, no two ANAT Bespoke Residencies are the same. Every iteration is customised to the project’s unique characteristics and is jointly supported by ANAT and the collaborator.
