BigCi Residency | Blue Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Site

Deadline August 25, 2019

Website | Application

BigCi is an independent, artist-run, not-for-profit artist residency program focusing on artists’ professional development and facilitating their projects.BigCi has been established and run by Rae Bolotin, a practicing artist, and Yuri Bolotin, environmentalist and wilderness explorer.

Because of our location on the edge of Wollemi National Park within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains and the knowledge base of our team, many of our resident artists are particularly interested in projects that explore environmental or ecological issues, although many others use our beautiful natural surroundings as a source of creativity for a variety of different artistic pursuits.

All residents have opportunities to take part in bushwalks conducted by Yuri Bolotin, an experienced mountain guide and author, and to learn first-hand about the unique natural environment of the area.
