The Cube 2019 Artist-in-residence

QUT Precincts invites creative practitioners to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for The Cube 2019 Artist-in-residence program.

The 2019 EOI period opens on 23 April and closes on 5 July 2019.

The Artist-in-residence (AIR) program is an opportunity for creatives to further their practice by designing, developing and delivering a project at The Cube.

The Cube is one of the world's largest digital interactive learning and display spaces located at QUT's Science and Engineering Centre. A hub for scientific and digital exploration, it is an innovative, world-class digital interactive environment for STEM learning, research, and engagement.

In developing the work, the resident will be supported to connect with relevant QUT staff and link to relevant technology and facilities.

Who is the AIR Program for?

The AIR program is open to applicants residing within the Asia-Pacific region. The program is suited to technically capable, established creative practitioners working across a broad range of disciplines within the digital landscape.

Past residents and projects are listed on The Cube website. Some of the example areas of practice can be found in the Artist-in-residence Guidelines (PDF, 115kb).

How do I submit an EOI?

Applicants are required to submit their resume, examples of previous work, and a brief preliminary project proposal.

Preliminary project proposals should provide a concept outline and presentation ideas for an innovative digital project which can be displayed on The Cube screens.

We are looking for strong ideas with creative merit, that seek to utilise The Cube’s technology and opportunities as a dedicated large-scale public interaction environment. View The Cube technical specifications
