Call for art-climate-science collaboration proposals – Broto Art-Climate-Science

Due April 1, 2021

Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organization is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following: — artist, scientist and observer — who will work together on a new project to test our Collaboration Blueprint.

Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an “observer” role — the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.

Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:

  1. Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements,
  2. Be documented as they move through their process and
  3. Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.

The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.

Submissions via the form at this link. Details include project team, scope, goals, timeline and use of funds.


Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an annual conference and online community of collaborating artists and scientists tackling aspects of climate change. The intent, through the Broto Collaboration Blueprint, is innovation through shared co-creation of work — whether it’s art or science or something in between.

We launched in 2018.

Broto is a program produced by the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability, a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Provincetown, MA.
