BigCi (Bilpin international ground for Creative initiatives)

BigCi is an independent, artist run, not for profit micro-artist residency program with a focus on supporting practicing artists by facilitating their projects. Being “micro” means that we are flexible in the range of creative initiatives that interest us, personal in the way we work with individual artists, quick in making decisions, energetic in development and implementation of projects and keen to be involved in multidisciplinary collaborations.

BigCi provides a ground for the professional development of artists from various fields, such as the Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Literature, Music, Photography, Film, and Hybrid Arts. Painters, sculptors, multimedia artists, performance artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers and other creative souls are invited to apply for the residency. Curators, artistic directors, visionaries and people with ideas are invited to propose events, gatherings, exhibitions and other creative initiatives. In addition to the artist residency program, BigCi is available for a variety of events, performances, workshops, installations and exhibitions. Because of our location within the World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains and the knowledge base of our team, many of our residents 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.
