Eligibility:

Submissions for the second Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College are open!

Cavendish Arts Science creates collective encounters between art and science that explore the world, our humanity, and our place in the world. We create new artistic work that questions traditional centring of voices and ways of knowing and looks to re-imagine ways of exploring material and immaterial universes. 

We are seeking adventurous artists who challenge traditional ways of knowing, engage with communities, and enjoy collectively imagining new possibilities. Artists with no previous experience working with scientists or in a scientific environment are particularly encouraged to apply. 

This unique collaborative opportunity is open to artists internationally. We welcome artists working in or across any medium, including visual arts, performance, theatre, film, writing, dance, music and sound, architecture, spatial and social practices, technology and digital and those with experimental practices.

The Fellowship will last one year from October 2022, and will include a residency in Cambridge of up to a maximum of a year. The artist will receive a stipend, and accommodation and subsistence during the period of residency. A budget will be provided for the production of new work, and for travel. 

Eligibility 

We welcome applications from artists:

  • With experience of developing high-quality artistic ideas, processes, and outcomes.
  • With a practice of embedded working in communities, especially those beyond traditional institutions and mainstream spaces.
  • Keen to explore and collectively imagine in ways that disrupt convention.
  • Open and keen to create innovative, thought-provoking work beyond their current practice.
  • Committed to collaborative practices across diverse spaces, and engagement with a breadth of different voices.
  • Enthusiastic about being a part of the community at Cavendish laboratory and Girton College, extensively interacting with physicists and those in other fields, and fostering new connections through artistic practice. 

Financial Support 

  • A stipend of £10,000 GBP will be paid to the successful candidate.
  • All accommodation and meals will be provided by Girton College during the residency in Cambridge.
  • A budget of £10,000 GBP will be made available to support the development of new work.
  • Travel to and from Cambridge for the residency will be paid for up to £3,000 GBP.

About Cavendish Arts Science

Building on an extensive history of arts science engagement at the Cavendish Laboratory, the Cavendish Arts Science programme was founded in 2016 by Suchitra Sebastian, head of the Quantum Materials group and is an initiative of the University of Cambridge, Cavendish Laboratory for Physics. 

With an extraordinary history of discovery and innovation in Physics since its opening in 1874, research at Cavendish Laboratory addresses fundamental questions from understanding space and the origin of the universe, to exploring time, matter and energy in all its forms and at every scale, from the very large to the inconceivably small.

Our 2021 Fellowship

In October 2021, moving image artist Logan Ryland Dandridge was appointed to the first year-long Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College. Logan was on a residency in Cambridge between January and June 2022. He brought specific interests in memory, non-linear time and Black experience to his dialogues with physicists.

Logan said: "This is an incredibly ambitious venture and I've definitely been put in a position to extend my practice in ways that I would never have thought possible. I think that is at the centre of this Fellowship. It is such a beautiful and delicate balance to be playing in as an artist."

The Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College is made possible through a partnership between Cavendish Arts Science and Girton College, Cambridge.
