Program Description

The Urban Futures Studio (Utrecht University) in partnership with the Jan van Eyck Academie initiates an art-science collaboration centered around imagining low-carbon futures. Application Deadline: 9 January 2022 In a 6-months collaboration starting in March 2022, the selected artist will work closely together with academic researchers towards an artistic intervention. Rather than communicating science, we aim to explore new ways to configure artistic and scientific approaches to imagine low-carbon futures that could incite a more meaningful climate debate. Embedded in the Urban Future Studio of Utrecht University, the art-science collaboration will involve conducting research, exploring various ways to engage different publics in imagining low-carbon future, and co-developing an artistic intervention.
