The ArtScienceWeek is an interdisciplinary week that combines art and science to help reshape the cultural environment of the 21st century towards a multidimensional form of individual and social creativity. The week seeks to inform, educate, mobilize, catalyze and maximize best ideas and opportunities for individual empowerment by connecting the public to leading scientific and artistic innovators. At the same time it seeks to foster an open dialog between the broad audience, researchers and artists on the future of art and science and how it impacts our world.
Explore and celebrate the entanglement of science and art through a curated program of thought-provoking conversations, inspiring theatrical and cinematic experiences, interactive workshops and engaging demonstrations, including the Night of Discoveries and the Brave New World Conference, and watch as the city of Leiden around you is transformed into a world of discovery.
Let your imagination roam free! ArtScienceWeek is a 7-day celebration of science, art and life, where new possibilities play and big ideas collide.
