Both the Bundanon & Riversdale properties have wireless satellite broadband. We recommend artists bring laptops with wireless capabilities to connect to satellite broadband. Artists who print of their work should bring their own printer as there is not one available in the Artist in Residence complex. We do not have a staff member trained in IT on site. Please arrange your own IT support beofre you arrive at Bundanon. Following is the information you will require: Outgoing mail server address is: mail.activ8.net.au. Mac users particularly need to add this address to their accounts. Without this you can receive emails via wireless but cannot send. Due to our isolated location, our connection can be interrupted at times. Accounts for large media downloads need to be approved. If you experience IT issues please advise a staff member or contact the Program Officer.
There is very limited mobile phone coverage on site at Bundanon & it is not to be relied upon. Access to a telephone is in the apartment/cottage, with free local calls. STD & IDD calls require phone cards. Please purchase your phone card before you arrive. The Riversdale site has mobile reception.
