About Synapse

About Synapse

Collaboration between the arts and sciences has the potential to create new knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial to both fields. Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different ways and from different perspectives; when working together they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us.

About ANAT

Since its inception in 1988, the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) has been a catalyst for experimentation and innovation across art, science 
and technology.

ANAT champions artistic excellence by supporting professional artists and
fostering a culture of creative risk-taking, secures the necessary resources 
to enable artists to pursue creative research and realise groundbreaking 
artworks, and communicates the importance of creative experimentation and
 expression within the arts and - increasingly - in broader society.
