“ANAT on Country” presented by Sowry


Presentation Title:

  • ANAT on Country



  • For over 30 years, ANAT has been a catalyst for experimentation and innovation across art, science and technology. We broker opportunities for artists to work with partners drawn from the science and technology sectors be-cause we believe that artists are essential to how we imagine and shape our future.

    ANAT on Country foregrounds Indigenous-led and artist-led research into Country and the challenges arising from land management practices and climate change. ANAT on Country is delivered through ANAT’s core programs, as well as through a number of new initiatives.

    Current projects include co-commissioning artists’ work, and a suite of art/science residencies, with a view to expanding these in coming years. The participating artists, scientists and other knowledge holders will present about their work at Spectra art/science biennial in 2020, and be supported to realise the diverse outcomes anticipated.

    The presentation will introduce ANAT on Country and draw out how the program and the participating artists and knowledge holders are engaging with the symposium theme, Sentience.
