Culture at Work is calling for applications to its 2014 Science Research Residencies. Artists are also invited to propose exhibitions for the program of Art Science Technology Exhibitions at the Accelerator gallery.
Culture at Work is an artist-led Australian Research Institute and art-science lab with a mission to connect artists with scientists and young talent through collaborations, studio residencies, exhibitions, public talks and public programs.
It’s a ground-breaking initiative led by a research committee of artists, scientists and educators enabling artists and researchers to innovate across disciplines. Collaborations include universities, local councils, art festivals, schools, health science institutes and universities.
Located in the City of Sydney, Culture at Work also hosts exhibitions, talks and mentoring programs for talented teenagers in its vision to cultivate the next generation of creative thinkers, creating cross curriculum education programs for schools, museums and galleries.
Past Art Science Technology Residencies have seen artists work with digital media, create sculptures inspired by fossils, fungi and microorganisms, research projects exploring light and astronomy and the way blood reacts to silk
2013 artists included Fiona Davies, Luke Hespanhol, Kath Fries, Rachel Park, Fiona Kemp, Carrie Ramig, Laura Jade, Gilbert Grace, Lisa Sammut and Frances Hansen. Artists working with science and or technology are invited to apply.
In 2014 CAW is also offering a residency to an arts writer, science communicator, art curator or art educator.
The closing date for applications is 30 March 2014.
