Arts at CERN obre una nova convocatòria del programa Collide per al diàleg entre arts i ciència

Collide Residency Award
Arts at CERN
Particle Physics

The programme Arts at CERN opened last Thursday, October 7, the call to participate in the Collide residency project to foster the dialogue between arts and science in collaboration with Barcelona’s City Council.

In this call, artists interested in the dialogue between art and science can apply with a project proposal to develop during the residency working side by side with particle physicists, engineers, IT experts and laboratory staff. The selected artist or artistic collective will receive a three-month fully funded residency award that will allow them to spend two months at CERN in Geneva, followed by one month in Barcelona where they can expand their research and engage with the scientific laboratories of the city while being hosted at Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production in Barcelona.


Arts at CERN focuses on the interactions between artists, scientists and engineers around the Laboratory’s rich culture through residency programmes, art commissions, and exhibitions. The Collide residency programme was established in 2012 to foster networks with international organisations and create new connections between art and fundamental science worldwide.

Following last year’s successful response, the Collide Info Day on the 4 November 2021 will give the opportunity to applicants to find out more about the residency award and ask questions to the Collide team of scientists, curators, and winning artists of the past edition.

The Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona hosted the winners of the Collide programme 2020, Black Quantum Futurism, last September 30 in a meeting where they shared their artistic experience with several members of the ICC.
