Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship

Eligibility:

Applications are open for the Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship.

This unique collaborative opportunity is open to artists internationally and is not confined to any single aesthetic, theme or medium.

Artists with no previous experience of working with scientists or in a scientific environment are particularly encouraged to apply.

We are seeking adventurous artists who explore alternative ways of knowing the world, and who work with communities that are not privileged in the mainstream. The fellowship offers opportunities for playful experimentation, and the space to re-imagine beyond conventional artistic and scientific boundaries.

The Fellowship will run for one year from October 2024 to October 2025, with a residency period in Cambridge typically of at least six months.

About the Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship
The Fellowship supports the Cavendish Arts Science ethos of experimenting, decentring and re-imagining. It is designed for artists to develop thought-provoking ideas through engagement with physicists and those in other fields, and to experiment with new
approaches to their practice that are transformative and push boundaries.

It is delivered through a partnership between Cavendish Arts Science, an initiative of the Cavendish Laboratory for Physics and Girton College, University of Cambridge, thanks to the vision and support of Una Ryan.

The Fellowship is financially supported:
- £10,000 GBP stipend paid to the artist towards living costs and expenses
- Rent-free accommodation and meals provided at Girton College during the residency period in Cambridge
- Travel budget of up to £3,000 GBP (depending on where the artist is based) will be made available to support the cost of travel to/from Cambridge
- Production budget of £10,000 GBP will be made available to support the development of new work arising from the Fellowship.

Previous Cavendish Arts Science Fellows include experimental filmmaker Logan Dandridge, artist and composer Ain Bailey, artist and dancer Robert Ssempijja.

About Cavendish Arts Science
Cavendish Arts Science creates collective encounters between art and science that explore the world, our humanity, and our place in the world.

We support artistic work that questions traditional centring of voices and ways of knowing; our programme creates new spaces to re-imagine material and immaterial universes.

About the Cavendish Laboratory
The Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge has an extraordinary history of discovery and innovation in Physics since its opening in 1874. Research in the Cavendish has been instrumental in our understanding of the physical world, from creating theories of electromagnetism and discovering the electron, to splitting the nucleus, and developing x-ray crystallography to see inside the atom. Today, fundamental questions addressed by research in the laboratory range 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. The Cavendish Laboratory will be moving to its new state-of-the-art home, the Ray Dolby Centre, later this year.
