The Cube 2018 Artist in Residence

QUT Precincts invites creative practitioners to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for The Cube 2018 Artist in Residence program.

Applications for The Cube's EOI open Monday 23 April and close Friday 1 June 2018.

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 with the support of The Cube Studio staff.

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.

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. Example areas of practice are listed in the Artist in Residence Guidelines.

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 of ideas for an innovative digital project for display 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.

Please read the Artist in Residence Guidelines to find out more about this opportunity.
