Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organisation is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following – artist, scientist and observer – who will work together on a new project to test Broto’s Collaboration Blueprint.
Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an ‘observer’ role – the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.
Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:
Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements.
Be documented as they move through their process.
Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.
The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.
