Australian Network for Art and Technology
The role of ANAT is to advocate, support and promote the arts and artists in the interaction between art, technology and science, nationally and internationally. Since its inception in 1985 ANAT has been at the forefront of the movement to position artists as active participants in the 'information age'. ANAT's goals, as written in the mission statement, are: To engage with art, science and technology to enable and influence culture, community and economic developments by building and participating in robust, resilient networks that exist to identify and pursue new opportunities in trans-disciplinary practice and inspiration. Supporting creative practitioners by identifying pathways for innovative and trans-disciplinary practice. Assisting creative practitioners to achieve financially sustainable practices that have important and positive economic impact.
I used these stencils with my students to make Christmas cards, and they were so excited with the results, as was I. We also decided to make Christmas Thank you cards for them to send out of state relatives who sent them gifts, and they couldn't wait to send them out! How's that for getting kids to even do that? Normally it's tough just getting them to sign their names on one! They were used 100's of times, and are still in perfect condition!!
