BigCi Environmental Awards 2017 – Call For Artists
Australian and international artists from various fields including visual art, installation, multimedia, performance, literature, music, photography, film making, and curating are invited to submit entries for the BigCi Environmental Awards 2017.
Deadline: 1 Apr 2017
BigCi is located only 1.5 hours drive from Sydney, Australia’s biggest city, yet it is in a dramatically different world. It is on the edge of the Wollemi National Park in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains. This is an area of stunning scenic beauty with its own unique flora, fauna, and geomorphology. There is no entry fee.
The two winning BigCi Environmental Awards 2017 artists will each receive four free weeks of BigCi residencies and AUD$2,000 spending money. In addition to that, up to AUD$2,000 Artflight travel subsidy will be shared between the two winners.
BigCi is an independent, artist run, not for profit micro artist residency program with a focus on supporting practicing artists by facilitating their projects. Micro means that they are flexible in the range of creative initiatives, personal in the way they work with individual artists, quick in making decisions, energetic in development and implementation of projects, keen to be involved in multidisciplinary collaborations.
BigCi provides a ground for the professional development of artists. In addition to the artist residency program, BigCi is available for a variety of events, performances, workshops, installations and exhibitions. Proposals are welcome. Because of their location and the knowledge base of our team, many of our residents are particularly interested in projects that explore environmental or ecological issues. Many others use our beautiful natural surroundings as a source of creativity for a variety of different artistic pursuits.
