Bilpin international ground for Creative initiative

Bilpin international ground for Creative initiative (BigCi) is an independent, artist run, not for profit micro-artist residency programme with a focus on supporting practicing artists by facilitating their projects. 

BigCi is situated on the edge of Wollemi National Park within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains, one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots. Due to the location and the knowledge base of the team, many of the resident artists are particularly interested in projects that explore environmental or ecological issues. 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 biodiversity and geodiversity of the area.

Artists-in-residence are able to present their work during a BigCi Open Day that takes place at the end of their stay.

Painters, sculptors, multimedia artists, performance artists, writers, musicians, dancers, filmmakers and other creative souls are invited to apply for the residency. Curators, artistic directors, visionaries and ideas people are welcome to propose events, gatherings, exhibitions and other creative initiatives. In addition to the artist residency program, BigCi is available for events, performances, workshops, installations and exhibitions. Proposals are welcome.
