Established in 2011, Arts at CERN, the official arts programme of the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, engages with art at the cutting edge of scientific research. In the second year of a successful collaboration with FACT – Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool – we are proud to announce the sixth edition of COLLIDE International Award. Arts at CERN and FACT joined efforts in 2016 in order to influence an international and flourishing scene of art and science. COLLIDE International Award welcomes proposals from artists from any country who are inspired by the ground-breaking research environment at CERN. From all the applications received one artist will be selected to receive a prize of CHF 15,000 and a two-month residency at the lab during 2017. Moreover, the prize comprises a following one-month residency at FACT, the UK’s leading media arts centre, to further develop the awarded proposal and to move into a funded production.
