STARTS Art & Science Residency at the Astronomical Observatory of Unamur

Residency Astronomical Observatory


The STARTS Horizon 2020 research & innovation programme in collaboration with the association KIKK, which promotes digital and creative cultures at the crossroads of art, culture, science and technology, are launching an Art & Science residency programme at the UNamur (University of Namur) Astronomical Observatory, organised in partnership with the Delta, the cultural space of the Province of Namur, and the TRAKK, the creative hub and Fab Lab of Namur. 

Two artists and/or collectives will be hosted in residence in the magnificent residency studios (2 flats each accommodating up to 4 people) located on the rooftop of the Delta in Namur, Belgiumfrom Monday 7 June to Saturday 10 July 2021. Each of them will receive a grant of 5.000 € to develop an Art / Science project on the theme of astronomy, as well as curatorial and scientific support to develop their production project.

The programme is aimed at artists with an interest in a transdisciplinary approach and an attraction for science and fundamental research. The artists will be able to dialogue and exchange with astrophysicists, researchers and the entire community around the Antoine Thomas Observatory. We accept artists from all creative disciplines.
