Are you an artist working in the sci/art genre? A scientist interested in collaborating with artists? Or one who wears both hats?
In the fall of 2019, the Curiosity Collider will be hosting our inaugural Sci-Art festival The Collisions Festival. The first theme will be Invasive Systems and we plan to feature a new theme each year. In the spring of 2019 we will be launching an open call to all BC artists working in the sci/art genre, inviting submissions for individual work and proposals for collaborative work with scientists in their fields of interest. The theme is meant to be broad in scope and not limited to any specific scientific subject/discipline; participants are encouraged to suggest various interpretations of the theme.
This three-day interactive festival will explore the delicate and complicated nature of how living things interact with and influence each other and their environment. Our festival will examine the effect those interactions can have on our ecosystems, cultures, societies, and our bodies. It will pose the question: are these influences desirable, inevitable, or preventable?
We would like to invite all artists and scientists who are interested in participating or potentially submitting a proposal to join us at this meet up event, chat about possible collaborations, and learn more about projects and details on “collaborative work” proposals we are looking for.
* This is a casual drop in event; feel free to stay, or just stop by and say hi. But please RSVP so we know how many to expect.
