Today, ARTS AT CERN has launched three new open calls, giving artists the chance to conduct research at CERN as part of its COLLIDE and ACCELERATE residencies.

Under the ACCELERATE programme, ARTS AT CERN will invite a South Korean visual artist and a Croatian artist to come to CERN and learn the scientific approach for understanding our universe, while the open call for COLLIDE Pro Helvetia goes to artists who were born, live or work in Switzerland, and work in the discipline of interactive digital art. The winning artist will take part in a three-month residency where creative collisions between arts and science are thriving.  

“Science, arts and technology are key disciplines in understanding and shaping today’s culture. CERN is proud to be part of that movement, by collaborating with international institutions to foster interactions between our scientists and artists from around the globe,” said CERN Director for International Relations, Charlotte Warakaulle.
