2007 ANAT Emerging Technologies Mentorship

ANAT is offering the opportunity for young and emerging practitioners
working with distributed, portable, online, wearable, gaming, mobile
and emerging platforms to undertake a three-month mentorship with an
established practitioner of their choice.

The mentorship enables an emerging artist to explore new creative
directions, to expand technical skills and increase knowledge of
networks, debates and business practice. Applicants are invited to
select a mentor and develop a program of activity spanning a
three-month period. By utilising emerging technologies the mentor may
be accessed locally, nationally or internationally and the successful
applicant will maintain a blog for the duration of the mentorship on
the ANAT server.

Applicants must be emerging technologies practitioners who are 30 years
or under. The mentorship will provide a fee for the mentoree ($7,200
excl GST) and a fee for the mentor ($1,800 excl GST). The mentorship
program should be completed by early December 2007.

ANAT guidelines and application
forms are available on our web site  http://www.anat.org.au. For
further information please contact Gavin Artz,  ANAT General Manager -
