Art and Science, a SRUK initiative

Due to the increasing specialization in the different branches of knowledge, multidisciplinary activities have become increasingly rare. However, when synergies are found between areas that are considered completely alien to each other, revolutionary pieces of work are produced. A particular example of this is Arts and Sciences: the Two Cultures. When Arts and Sciences come together, like, for example in the fantastic anatomic studies by Leonardo da Vinci, or the portrait of space-time continuum by Salvador Dali, the result change forever the way we perceive the world.

With “Art and Science, a SRUK initiative”, we aim to create a space where both scientists and artists can work together, communicate and learn from each other. We propose this activity in which both scientists and artists will explore the same scientific question or hypothesis. Their different ways to approach to the same study will be later presented to the general public.

Selected proposal will receive a monetary award of up to £300 and artworks will be showcased in London, Cambridge and Manchester.
