As climate impacts are becoming increasingly visible, the need to transform towards a low-carbon future is now more evident than ever. We need more compelling imaginaries of what such a low-carbon future may look like and what possible pathways towards this future may be. The Urban Futures Studio (Utrecht University) initiates an art-science collaboration centred around imagining low-carbon futures.

In a 6-months collaboration starting in March 2022, the selected artist will work closely together with academic researchers towards an artistic intervention. Rather than ‘communicating science’, we aim to explore new ways to configure artistic and scientific approaches to imagine low-carbon futures that could incite a more meaningful climate debate.

Application deadline: 9 January 2022

How can apply:

Artists based in the Netherlands with an interest in and knowledge of the climate emergency and its (social, geopolitical, economical) effects are eligible to apply.
