Art and science interactions.
COLLIDE Artists Residency Award is the flagship program of Arts at CERN.
The main goal of the residency is to develop expert knowledge in the arts through a connection with fundamental science. COLLIDE gives artists the opportunity to encounter the multi-dimensional world of particle physics. Since 2011 the COLLIDE award calls to artists to win a fully funded residency for up to 3 months at CERN.
The COLLIDE International Award started as Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN, in a three-year partnership (2011-2014) with Ars Electronica. It was funded by private sponsors including UNIQA, with the prize money supported by our cultural partner at the time, Ars Electronica, Linz. In 2015, the partnership carried on for one more year with the COLLIDE Ars Electronica Award. As of 2016 the COLLIDE International Award is part of The COLLIDE CERN FACT Framework Partnership 2016-2018, in collaboration with FACT, The Foundation for Arts and Creative Technology in Liverpool.
