Please spread this message.
Thank you!




Due to its success in 2010 & 2011 the third edition of the Designers & Artists 4 Genomics Award (DA4GA) will take place in 2012. The results of the current edition are on exhibition at Naturalis, Leiden until the end of this year.

Always wanted to be at the forefront of riveting art that is trans-disciplinary and pushes the boundaries of technological and artistic possibilities? Then submit your application for DA4GA and take a chance on winning a € 25.000, - project!

DA4GA highlights and explores the exciting and novel possibilities between design, artistic practice and Life Sciences. Inaugurated by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative, Waag Society, Naturalis and CSG – Centre for Society and the Life Sciences, DA4GA aims to stimulate emerging designers and artists to delve into the world of bio-art, and produce new work in close collaboration with the most prestigious Netherlands Life Sciences institutes in the field of sustainability, food, health, bio-informatics, agriculture, energy and safety.

Did you graduate no longer than five years ago in the field of art or design? Do the breakthroughs of Life Sciences fascinate you, and do you have a knack for (applied) arts and/or design? Then we want you to send in your CV, portfolio and idea for a project that combines artistic merit with the vast developments in Life Sciences.
