About BigCi

BigCi is an independent, artist run, not for profit artist residency program focusing on artists’ professional development and facilitating their projects. BigCi has been established and run by Rae Bolotin, a practicing artist, and Yuri Bolotin, environmentalist and wilderness explorer.

Because of the location on the edge of Wollemi National Park within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains and the knowledge base of our team, many resident artists are particularly interested in projects that explore environmental or ecological issues. Others use the beautiful natural surroundings as a source of creativity for a variety of artistic pursuits.
