Second Life Arts Residency

Yeaux Sage in fron of Rez AD

Second Life Artists Residency

Application closing date: 27 July 2007 The Australia Council for the Arts is offering up to $20,000 for a collaborative artist residency in the virtual world of Second Life. The aim of the residency is to offer Australian artists and writers the opportunity to creatively and critically explore new interactive, virtual platforms.

The residency allows for a collaborative team of up to three people (including a writer, musician/sound artist and digital visual media practitioner) to develop inter-disciplinary artwork in Second Life. Applications will be accepted from teams who fulfil all the residency requirements, including having the necessary artform experience. Artists or writers who have professional experience in more than one of the required artform areas can include this as part of their submission.

Program purpose: The Second Life artist residency is an initiative of the Literature Board, Music Board and Inter-Arts Office of the Australia Council. The residency is in-world and requires artists and writers to explore the possibilities of inter-disciplinary literary, music/sound art and digital visual media practices.

The successful team will develop new artistic in-world practices and comment on the social and cultural layers that have evolved in Second Life.

Key requirements of the project are a clear strategy for harnessing both in-world and real life audiences and developing public exhibition opportunities for the artwork in Australia.
