National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

Join us in Santa Barbara California to create art inspired by interactions with environmental scientists and the scientific process while helping influence the way science is done. In partnership with The Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science and Technology (SBCAST), we seek proposals from artists for up to six weeks of residency spread over six months. The opportunity is open to artists of all sorts, including painters, poets, musicians, photographers, illustrators, printmakers, playwrights, performance artists, digital artists, and more.

The aim of our Artist-in-Residence program is to engage artists and scientists in creative conversation that changes the way each thinks about their own work – artists finding new ways to represent and communicate science and scientific ideas, and scientists finding different ways to pose and address core scientific questions.

Applications are due June 15, 2022.
