Artist call out – Art-Science project

The University of Leicester is inviting artists, through an open call, to send in expressions of interest for an Art-Science project. The project is funded by a University grant and is supported by the Wellcome Trust through the Public Engagement Scheme of the Institutional Strategic Support Fund. Following a pilot project last year, Dr Leschke, from the School of Mathematics, now leads an interdisciplinary “Maths meets Arts Tiger Team” of artists and researchers from the University of Leicester to investigate how the collaboration of artists and scientists can impact teaching, research and public engagement in science, and in particular, in mathematics. As part of these activities, there will be a facilitated networking “sandpit” event for artists and scientists to explore routes for collaborations.
