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.
