Fellowship | Promoted

The Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College, Cambridge

Updated: 22 April 2024

The Fellowship supports the Cavendish Arts Science ethos of experimenting, decentring and re-imagining. It is designed for artists to develop thought-provoking ideas through engagement with physicists and those in other fields, and to experiment with new approaches to their practice that are transformative and push boundaries. We are seeking adventurous artists who explore alternative ways of knowing the world, and who work with communities that are not privileged in the mainstream. The fellowship offers opportunities for playful experimentation, and the space to re-imagine beyond conventional artistic and scientific boundaries.

Eligibility: Any artist can apply for the Fellowship regardless of medium or practice, nationality, or country of residence, as long as the artist is out of full-time education by the start of the Fellowship, over the age of 18, and willing to travel to Cambridge. Artists with no previous experience of working with scientists or in a scientific environment are particularly encouraged to apply.

What you get: The Fellowship is financially supported; A stipend of 10,000 GBP(£) will be paid to the successful candidate. This amount includes all taxes and is a contribution towards the artist's living costs and expenses. Rent-free accommodation and meals will be provided at Girton College during the residency period in Cambridge. A travel budget of up to GBP 3,000 (depending on where the artist is based) will be made available to support the cost of travel to/from Cambridge. The production budget of GBP 10,000 will be made available to support the development of new work arising from the Fellowship.
