The Arts Councilís International Artists Fellowship Programme was set up to support
individual artists working in any art form to gain time and space for sustained
periods of international practice within different cultural contexts. In conjunction
with UC Berkeley, the fellowship at Space Sciences Laboratory will fund up to 3 months
of practice-based research for the selected artist. Funding will also cover accommodation,
food, travel and a small stipend during the programme.
The Center for Science Education at Space Sciences Laboratory will provide day to day
support for the selected artist, helping to make connections with scientists and NASA
satellite missions both at Space Sciences Laboratory and at other partnering institutions nationally.
