GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Cern’s new experiment in arts and science is a 3-year artist’s residency programme initiated by the laboratory.
One of the programmes, offered to dancers, is sponsored by the city and canton of Geneva.
Some of the grants, given to artists in various disciplines, range from 3-months to 3-years.
What is really interesting is that grant winners will work with Cern scientists to develop art that uses science.
- The first call, Dance and Performance, went out to Geneva-born choreographers and performers, or those currently living or working in the canton.
- The Prix Ars Electronica, is geared to digital artists, or any artist that uses digital technology. It is open to artists outside Geneva. “You might be a choreographer, performer, visual artist, filmmaker or composer,” says Cern.
