HIFMB and Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg have established a joint annual artist-in-residence fellowship. The art projects within this scheme are intended to address aspects of marine biodiversity change and to promote public understanding and the transfer of knowledge in a changing world through art. Main objectives are to develop new formats for the transfer of science into social and/or political debates and to build new networks to promote the visibility of marine biodiversity research. HIFMB aims for the most effective interaction and will create conditions for an inspiring and creative collegial dialogue between artists and researchers. We ask the artists to especially involve early career scientists and to explore with them ideas and ways of integrating new ways of thinking and working into their work. ArtWaves has the ambition to support the transfer of scientific knowledge also to the science-policy interface where scientific knowledge finds its way into implementing and legislating policy solutions and application. By nurturing creativity and innovation, the program not only educates but also inspires action and awareness for ocean conservation and marine biodiversity research. This cooperation is closely linked to the United Nations Ocean Decade.
We jointly invite applications for one fellowship for an artist to take place in 2024.
Deadline: 3 October
