[Nettime-nl] Invitation DA4GA II

The Netherlands Genomics Initiative, Waag Society, CSG Centre for Society and the Life Sciences and NCB Naturalis kindly invite you to join the festive presentation of the 2nd Designers & Artists 4 Genomics Award (DA4GA), on the 8th of December 2011 at Naturalis in Leiden. 

The Designers & Artists 4 Genomics Award (DA4GA) is a unique international competition that stimulates artists and designers to enter the world of bio-art and to create new projects in cooperation with scientists from recognized Dutch genomics centres. DA4GA is the first Dutch contest where art, design and life sciences are brought together. 

After a successful first edition, which received a lot of (inter)national press attention, the second edition took off this summer. On Thursday December 8th, a professional jury from the field of art and science will announce which three finalists will realize their project with a budget of â25.000. You are kindly invited to join us. 

Program sections: 
- A presentation of Nicola Triscot (director of The Arts Catalyst) about the cooperation between art and science, 
- Presentations of the 7 finalists, 
- The award presentation by the jury president Macha Roesink (director of Museum de Paviljoens).
