Arts at CERN: Collide International residency award


Arts at CERN have announced the third edition of their Collide International Residency award, a major international residency programme. Together, CERN and FACT, Liverpool promote artistic explorations of fundamental research, fostering significant exchanges and new scenarios for art and science enquiry.

Collide International Residency award is a unique opportunity for artists to spend dedicated time in CERN, European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the largest laboratories in the world, where physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Collide aims to encourage curiosity, offering experimental and open-minded artists an extraordinary framework to inspire creativity both within the sciences and the humanities. Ultimately, Collide proposes to transform the way art and science encounters are understood, and to challenge new modes of dialogue and enquiry.

The Residency award is open to artists of any nationality or age, and is a competition for one residency of a total of three months (two months at CERN followed by one month at FACT). The residency is intended to support the development of an original and imaginative project proposed by the artist, inspired by CERN’s science and engineering research in connection with societal issues.

Deadline: Thursday 15 February 2018.
