*CALL FOR APPLICATIONS :: 2012 SYNAPSE RESIDENCIES Enabling collaboration between the arts & sciences*

*The Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) is calling for applications from artists and science and research organisations for the 2012 Synapse Residency program. Now in its seventh round, the program is a core element of the Synapse initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts and ANAT, which supports collaboration between artists and scientists.*

The residencies are open to *Australian artists *with a demonstrated interest in science working in any discipline and/or medium. Australian-based residencies of 16 weeks’ duration that take place during the 2012 calendar year will be supported.

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. The Synapse residencies have a creative research focus and it is not expected that they will result in the production of new work. The residencies may also be approached as a platform for testing and informing a more comprehensive, longer-term research project suitable for submission to the ARC Synapse Linkage program.

New Technological Art Award Foundation Liedts-Meesen 2012

Call for Entries from 1 November 2011 till 31 March 2012

Update_4 Zebrastraat Gent Zebrastraat 32/001 9000 Gent Belgium www.ntaa.be or www.newtechnologicalartaward.be

After update_1 in 2006, with as curator Jean-Marie Dallet, professor and researcher linked to ÉESI, responsible of the laboratory of the école d’art Figures de l’interactivité, Angoulême-Poitiers, France, followed by update_2 in collaboration with the ZKM, Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe and with as curator Peter Weibel, Director of the ZKM, and finally update_3, in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, Service Nouveaux Médias and as curator Christine Van Assche, guardian of the Centre Pompidou, we are determined to continue this series with update_4, to be held from 15th September till 18th of November 2012.

We want to put some new accents in update_4.

Previously, the exhibitions were combined with the New Technological Art Award Liedts-Meesen, which enjoyed a growing interest from the part of the artists and the public. For this reason, we want to increase the importance of this contest by taking the following measures: * New and adapted rules, which are stricter, and will focus more specifically on the artistic contribution of the new technologies, * The number of nominees who will have the opportunity to show their works of art during update_4 will pass from 10 to 20, * Finally, the works will be presented at three sites: Zebrastraat in Ghent, La Cambre in Brussels (for works to be shown in the open air), and iMAL, also in Brussels As previously, the nominees will be selected by a professional jury, which will also award the final price of 5000 euro; besides this, there will also be a price from the audience. The second part of the event consists of an exhibition of renowned artists in the field of New Technological Art. Only two or three works will be presented at each site. To these two activities will be added a third one, namely the organization of a three days colloquium on new tendencies in contemporary art. We will invite a number of artists and personalities from all over the world, who would discuss during the day certain topics related to this art movement. The conclusions of their discussions and the texts of their papers will be published in the form of a reference book, replacing the previously published catalogues. As you can see, we evolve from the concept of an exhibition combined with a contest, towards an event combining exhibition, contest and colloquium, yielding a reference book. — Artabase is the best way to promote and archive art on the internet. http://www.artabase.net
