The Art the Science Residency is a novel opportunity for Canadian artists interested in, or inspired by science to expand their practice in a scientific framework. By collaborating with researchers, Art the Science opens traditionally inaccessible research spaces to the arts community. Our organization creates access for artists by helping lift barriers to scientific research.
We foster and facilitate collaborations between scientists and artists to help challenge, disrupt, and encourage cross-disciplinary innovation. Art the Science considers innovation to be a novel and disruptive process currently not utilized in traditional artistic practice. We believe that innovation thrives on collaboration, bringing together diverse groups to share knowledge and advance the art and science sectors for the benefit of the public. For Art the Science, this process embodies inclusion – the act of advocating for full participation of artists, scientists, and the general public at all levels.
