COLLIDE International Award
Arts@CERN announces the COLLIDE International Award, an international residency programme and a new collaboration between CERN and FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool). The competition is open to artists of any nationality or age. Their proposal should reflect upon encounters between art and science, and offer challenging methods of collaboration with CERN scientists. The scope of this proposal should also consider a second developmental phase at FACT, where the artists will have the opportunity to expand their research and test its applications through FACTLab’s facilities and engagement with a wide range of communities. The ultimate goal for the residency will be the research and development of new concepts in laboratory contexts. COLLIDE International Award grants an artist with a fully funded residency at CERN and FACT. The artist will spend the first two months at CERN, Geneva, followed by a one-month stay at FACT, Liverpool (not necessarily consecutively). The award includes 15,000 Swiss Francs (approx. £10,900); an allowance for two months at CERN, Geneva and one month at FACT, Liverpool; plus travel costs and accommodation within a fixed budget for the three months of the artistic residency at CERN and FACT.
Expires: May 23, 2016
