- Brief description of residency program
- 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 of the area, conducted by Yuri Bolotin, an experienced mountain guide.
Artists-in-residence are able to present their work during a BigCi Open Day that usually takes place at the end of their stay.
