About Us

The Cavendish Arts Science programme creates collective encounters between art and science that explore the world, our humanity, and our place in the world.

We support artistic work that questions traditional centring of voices and ways of knowing.

Our programme creates new spaces to re-imagine material and immaterial universes.

We are delighted to announce Ugandan contemporary artist, dancer and researcher, Robert Ssempijja, as the third Cavendish Arts Science Fellow at Girton College. 

We had a fantastic response to our international Open Call with over 700 artists applying from 78 countries around the world. The selection panel of arts and science professionals chose Ssempijja for his 'regenerative art practice' that moves away from exploitative relationships at every level, making a bridge between the distorted past and the digital present through his creations. We look forward to welcoming him to Cambridge.




Cavendish Arts Science is an initiative of the University of Cambridge, Cavendish Laboratory for Physics. The Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College is made possible through a partnership with Girton College.

The programme is made possible by the vision and generous support of Una Ryan.
