SymbioticA is a laboratory that facilitates artistic research residencies enabling artists and researchers to engage in wet biology practices within a biological science department.
Our physical location within the School of Anatomy and Human Biology exposes artists and researchers to the culture and practice of science providing a hothouse for developing new skills and knowledge for its residents. Residents practise lab work and are given training in scientific and technical knowledge related to the area of research the resident wishes to pursue.
As a part of The University of Western Australia, they also offer residents a wealth of resource equipment, knowledge and expertise. Residents have worked in collaboration with academics and technicians in the biological and social sciences, arts and humanities, engineering and agriculture departments.
The residency takes place at the University of Western Australia, 10 minutes from downtown Perth. The physical location takes place within the School of Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology.
