We are seeking adventurous artists whose practice resonates with the Cavendish Arts Science ethos of questioning, collective imagining and decentring. The selected artist will bring alternative ways of knowing the world, artistic practices immersed in communities that are not privileged in the mainstream, and an enthusiasm to collectively imagine new possibilities. The Fellowship will last one year from October 2023 and will include a residency period at Girton College in Cambridge.
Any artist can apply for the Fellowship regardless of medium or practice, nationality or country of residence, as long as the artist is out of full-time education by the start of the Fellowship, over the age of 18 and willing to travel to Cambridge. We actively encourage applications from artists with no previous experience of working in a scientific environment.
A stipend of £10,000 GBP (= ca. 11.500 €) will be paid to the successful candidate. Accommodation and meals will be provided by Girton College during the residency period in Cambridge. A production budget of £10,000 GBP (= ca. 11.500 €) will be made available to support the development of new work, as well as a budget of up to £3,000 GBP (= ca. 3.450 €) to support the cost of travel to/from Cambridge.
