Arts & Intelligence Innovation workshop: artist opportunity



King’s College London is presenting its first university-wide festival in spring 2021. The King’s Festival will animate our campuses and public spaces through an ambitious programme of events, exhibitions and cultural commissions.The King’s Festival 2021 theme is ‘Intelligence’, exploring the changing ways we think about intelligence and what this might mean for all of us in the future.

Within the King’s Festival, the Arts & Intelligence Innovation Programme offers an opportunity for artists and arts organisations to develop new conversations and collaborations with King’s researchers that test and trial research-based ideas, develop new critical perspectives and provoke further debate around the theme of ‘intelligence’.

The programme will support the development, delivery and evaluation of a number of collaborative projects which emerge through a facilitated workshop taking place on Wednesday 13 November 2019, 14.15 – 19.45

King’s is keen to hear from artists who would like to be considered for this event.

The workshop will offer:

  • an opportunity to engage with King’s academics to explore ideas around intelligence,
  • a facilitated environment for collaborative ideas generation,
  • a relaxed and informal space to meet new people and share ideas.

If you are interested, please fill out the short form on the right by midnight Wednesday 6 November.

Refreshments will be provided, and we will pay an honorarium to artists who take part. 

As there are limited places for the event, you will receive confirmation as to whether you have secured a space on a rolling basis and before Thursday 7 November.

Please feel free to forward this opportunity to any fellow artists who may be interested.
