Art, Research, Adventure

The statistical odds of a scientist winning a Nobel Prize triples if he or she has an avocational practice in the arts

University of Bath doesn’t teach the arts, but believes in its power to transform how people see the world and themselves in it, as well as the benefits of creativity and the creative process to all. Art/Research collaborations can take many different forms, from depicting scientific phenomena through visual arts,  to a ballet dancer interacting with a specially designed robot,  to artists using VR in their practice, and everything in between. At The Edge, we provide the space and expertise to nurture collaborations between artists and academics, facilitating mutual projects and exploring funding and partnership possibilities, as well as showcasing art/research outcomes to new audiences.
