Cultural Institute of the University of Leeds > Cultural Fellowships (United Kingdom)
Are you an artist working in the area of arts and science/hybrid arts, in the early to mid-stage of your career with a developing national and international profile? Would you like to be involved in one of the premiere academic-artistic fellowships programmes in Europe?
The University of Leeds’ Academy of Cultural Fellows aims to support and develop emerging creative talent in a variety of different art forms. The Cultural Institute Cultural Fellowship in Art and Science recognises and wishes to support outstanding talent in any contemporary art forms. As a Cultural Fellow, you will support the exploration of an art/science practice or “hybrid arts” where artists work with frontier areas of science and emerging technologies. In this context, “hybrid arts” is taken to mean the process of fusing different media and genres into new forms of artistic expression as well as the act of transcending the boundaries between art, science, technology and research.
You will be at an early to mid-stage of your career, and a confident practitioner with a developing national or international profile. You will have already achieved significant public success and be able to demonstrate the potential to be outstanding in your creative field.
Preference may be given to artists working in the areas of medicine and health; engineering/materials science or climate.
