A position at KIND known as ‘the Artist in Residence’ will be offered annually to an artist with an outstanding reputation. The Artist-in-Residence fellowship offers talented artists working in the fields of conceptual art, visual art, photography, music, design, dance, film, theatre, or poetry an opportunity to work on a project within the international and interdisciplinary academic setting of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft (KIND). He/she will be invited to come to KIND for a period of about 3 months, in which he/she will have the opportunity to closely interact with the scientists at the institute, join in work discussions, experience lab work, and the like. The expectation is that the Artist-in-Residence fellowship will result in a piece of art that relates to the nanoscience at KIND.

Thursday 21st of April marked the finish of a three-month creative exchange between researchers at Kavli Institute and pianist Andrija Pavlović, Kavli Artist in Residence of 2022, inspiring both the Kavli scientists and the artist in their work: read the article in the current issue of the Kavli newsletter.
KIND initiated the artist-in-residence fellowship to promote the relationship between the arts and sciences and thus find new ways to interact and communicate concerning discoveries about matter on the nanoscale. The view is that the cross-fertilization between creative approaches and scientific disciplines will evoke disruptive new insights, strengthen ties, and trigger novel approaches.
