Arts + Science in Residence

The Art+Science in Residence program will host artists by invitation drawn to collaboration, interested in interdisciplinary art, science and technological dialogue, and open to developing new working methods and research techniques. While the Center allows room for variance, residencies typically unfold over two years and include both an exploratory and project-development phase. The program allows for artists to embed within the unique culture of the Center and UC Berkeley and its environs. The program affords access to a dynamic and diverse community of scholars, visitors, staff, and provides opportunities for cross-pollination with a broad public.
