Art and Science Programme 2017

The CÚRAM Art and Science programme aims to create links with the artistic community and support the art-science discipline while increasing interest in science and current research.  Since 2015, CÚRAM has hosted artist residencies in the laboratories and also in artist studio spaces situated near the beautiful Aula Maxima.

In 2017, in partnership with the Galway City Arts Office, we invite proposals from artists across Ireland who are interested in working as part of CÚRAM’s public engagement programme.

We invite artists to propose ideas for an ambitious and contemporary permanent artwork in the Westside community in Galway, for display in the Library, Boxing Club or similar location specified by the artist.  The budget for this project is €10,000.

Deadline for submissions 5pm on June 19th 2017.

The artist will work with one of the following three themes:

• Biomimicry

• How to Fix a Broken Heart

• Biomaterials and the Body

For more information, please download the application form.
