Call for Artists - Creative Reactions 2018

Creative Reactions - Pint of Science

Creative Reactions is now in it's 4th year, where artists are paired up with speakers that participate in the fabulous Pint Of Science, culminating in a Grand FInale exhibition of all the artworks, this year to be held again at St Barnabas Church in Mill Road.

Pint of Science is a not for profit organisation that holds annual festivals in multiple cities around the UK, and worldwide. The Cambridge Pint of Science festival brings scientists to pubs around the city to present and discuss their science with the public. This will take place over three days on the 14-16th of May 2018. More information on POS can be found here: 

In parallel to the talks is Creative Reactions. Born here in Cambridge, Creative Reactions involves the one-to-one pairing of local artists with the scientists that will participate in Pint of Science 2018. The artists are introduced to the speakers and are encouraged to participate in a creative exercise with them. The resulting artwork will be exhibited over two days, which marks the "grande finale" of the festival. On friday the 18th May there will be a fun evening of events and refreshments to celebrate the festival, plus the exhibition will also be open Saturday 19th May until 5pm. All kinds of artwork are welcome, and we would like to present a diverse display of genres and techniques. In previous festivals, we have enjoyed incorporating dance, glass, ceramics, felt making, video and sound art, and even a drawing machine, as well as the more traditional paintings and drawings, with many of the artworks for sale.
