Program Description

Artists from various fields – visual art, installation, multimedia, performance, literature, music, photography, film making, curating – are invited to submit entries for the BigCi Environmental Awards 2020. Your submission must show how you will respond to the environmental issues of the day using your chosen medium. Relevance to our location on the edge of the Wollemi National Park in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains is essential. We are looking for inspirational projects that will be executed within the residency time frame. The two winning artists will each receive (4) free weeks of BigCi residency and AUD$2,500 spending money. In addition to that, up to AUD$2,000 flight travel subsidy will be shared between the two winners. There is an entry fee of AUD$30 that must be paid at the time of sending the submission. Entry fees are not refundable. They will be used to support these Awards and other BigCi artist-in-residence programs.
