The Mistra Environmental Communication team at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) are excited to facilitate one artist-in-residence (AiR) in the Sunshine Coast, Australia in 2023.
The AiR@USC offers the opportunity to investigate and explore the environment and sustainability through immersion in the Mistra Environmental Communication research that is ongoing at USC. In intersecting academics with their practice, the hope is that the selected artist will materialise unconventional perspectives that enrich contemporary academic discourse on environmental issues. By awarding a compelling grant, access to facilities, affiliation with an academic host, and organisational support from the team at USC, the aim is to offer a fulfilling opportunity to examine how the environment and sustainability is understood and expressed in a politicised, polarised and complex world.
The AiR@USC is performed on location in the Sunshine Coast, Australia, from the 1 March - 30 April 2023.
The artist selected for the AiR@USC is supported with:
- Dialogical exchange with the academic host.
- Organisational support to showcase their produced work.
- Immersion in the Mistra Environmental Communication research process and community.
- Access to library and IT network facilities.
- A 54,000 SEK grant (~5000 EUR) of which:
- 37,000 SEK are earmarked to cover accommodation and living costs in Sunshine Coast for 2 months.
- 13,000 SEK are earmarked to cover travel costs.
- 4000 SEK are earmarked to cover material costs.
