2007 ANAT Emerging Technologies Mentorship

ANAT is offering the opportunity for young and emerging practitioners working with distributed, portable, online, wearable, gaming, mobile and emerging platforms to undertake a three-month mentorship with an established practitioner of their choice.

The mentorship enables an emerging artist to explore new creative directions, to expand technical skills and increase knowledge of networks, debates and business practice. Applicants are invited to select a mentor and develop a program of activity spanning a three-month period. By utilising emerging technologies the mentor may be accessed locally, nationally or internationally and the successful applicant will maintain a blog for the duration of the mentorship on the ANAT server.

Applicants must be emerging technologies practitioners who are 30 years or under. The mentorship will provide a fee for the mentoree ($7,200 excl GST) and a fee for the mentor ($1,800 excl GST). The mentorship program should be completed by early December 2007.


ANAT guidelines and application forms are available on our web site
