Particle physics and the arts are inextricably linked: both are ways to explore our existence – what it is to be human and our place in the universe. The two fields are natural creative partners for innovation, research and development.
Arts@CERN consists of:
COLLIDE: Artists Residencies - open calls for artists to win a fully funded residency of up to 3 months at CERN
ACCELERATE: Artists Research - open calls for two artists from two different countries to win a research stay of up to 1 month at CERN
Guest Artists: for established artists and cultural researchers
Visiting Artists: Arts@CERN curated visits
The arts programme comes under the auspices of CERN's Cultural Policy for Engaging with the Arts, Great Arts for Great Science adopted by the laboratory in 2011.
