Applications are now open for the first Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College. This unique collaborative opportunity is open to artists internationally and is not confined to any single aesthetic, theme, or medium.
We are seeking thought-provoking and adventurous artists, in particular those with no previous experience of interacting with scientists. The successful artist will develop ideas through engagement with physicists and other researchers and produce new work to be exhibited during the Fellowship and beyond. The Fellowship will last for one year from October 2021 and will normally include a residency in Cambridge, UK of at least four months, with potential for this to be split.
Cavendish Arts Science is an initiative of the University of Cambridge, Cavendish Laboratory for Physics. The Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College is made possible through a partnership with Girton College. The programme is supported by a generous donation from Una Ryan.
Eligibility: The Fellowship is open to artists working in any medium and regardless of place of residence or nationality. Applicants must be out of full-time education and over the age of 18. We are seeking thought-provoking and adventurous artists, in particular those with no previous experience of interacting with scientists.
What you get out of it: A stipend of £10,000 GBP will be paid to the successful candidate. All accommodation and meals will be provided by Girton College during the residency in Cambridge. A budget of £10,000 GBP will be made available to support the development of new work. Travel to and from Cambridge for the residency will be paid for up to £3,000 GBP. Develop ideas through ongoing engagement with physicists and other researchers during the duration of the fellowship. Produce and exhibit new work during the period of fellowship. Have opportunities to exhibit work in other contexts including the opening of the new Cavendish Laboratory (Ray Dolby Centre) in 2023 and potentially those created through national and international partnerships.
Deadline: 16 May 2021
