New Open Calls

30 Sep 2019

Accelerate Finland and Collide Geneva announced

Calls are currently closed and will be announced again in 2020!!!


Arts at CERN announces two open calls for art residencies – Collide Geneva/Dance and Accelerate Finland. The art residency programmes are based on the particle physics laboratory’s cultural strategy, which aims to foster networks between local and international organisations through platforms that engage arts and science.

For the sixth Collide Geneva residency, Arts at CERN, the Republic and Canton of Geneva and the City of Geneva have joined forces. The three-month fully funded residency award will be granted to a Geneva-based artist or artist collective working in the field of dance. The winner will have the opportunity to carry out their research at CERN and work together with particle physicists, engineers and IT professionals. Collide Geneva/Dance encourages applications from dance artists inspired by scientific ideas or technological concepts, with innovative approaches in their artistic expression.

The second call is for Accelerate Finland, a one-month residency programme for Finnish artists. Launched in collaboration with Capsula, an international curatorial programme based in Finland that supports dialogue between arts and sciences in the region, Accelerate Finland intends to promote artistic explorations of topics in particle physics. The Finnish artist selected from all the received proposals will be invited to visit CERN and explore possible new scenarios for enquiry in arts and science.
