Accelerate

A country-specific award for artists from different geographies to access the artistic residencies at CERN

If you're an artist who's never spent time in a science laboratory before, this one-month residency award might help you acquire that unique experience. Every year, public and private organizations fund the participation of a different artistic domain in the Accelerate Award. A call for submissions is announced and the selected artist is invited to CERN for a fully-funded residency.
