Naturestrip is a supporter of independent Australian art with a focus on sound, that has evolved to fund and assist a variety of projects. We are passionate about the projects we get behind and we aim to make a positive contribution to the ongoing development of the Australian experimental sound landscape.
From 2015 our focus is to provide grants that includes residency support, commissions and artist grants to realise a sound art project. For specific details, you can find out more at SUBMISSIONS.
Naturestrip is excited to launch some opportunities for artists in 2016, with an Artist Grant, a Residency Grant and a Commissioned Work Grant.Read More

In 2016 naturestrip will be supporting Peter Blamey to realise a new radiophonic work in collaboration with Bogong Centre for Sound and Culture. A residency in Bogong during the second half of 2016, will allow Peter to create a long form listening piece based around his practice as a theorist, sculptor and sound artist, responding to the Place and his interest in the way electricity influences our lives.Peter Blamey's website
