art@CMS SciArt Collaboration with the University of Applied Arts / HEPHY - Academy of Science


Collaboration information meeting
art@CMS is an education and outreach programme of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics. Since 2012, art@CMS has been a springboard for engagement with scientific research in physics in an exciting and inspiring way, through the development of creative and participatory experiences for the public, especially aimed at young people. By working on both global and local scales, art@CMS is a dynamic international network of collaborations involving researchers, artists, students and educators. The projects undertaken through art@CMS demonstrate not only the beauty of science but also its direct relevance to the values, needs and expectations of the 21st century learners.

art@CMS has 2 branches:
  1. exhibitions: we establish collaboration among scientist, professional artists, art institutes, students, and support group or soloexhibitions both at CERNand worldwide
  2. SciArt Workshops: we design and run science & art workshops that help students to think creatively about the direct relevance of science and art to their lives.
