Beyond Boundaries Project
About the project
The MPLS Division’s new Beyond Boundaries project, funded by the Oxford Diversity Fund, is a new art competition for Oxfordshire state school students in Years 7, 8 & 9, to create art inspired by research from 12 Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) scientists and mathematicians.
School students are asked to select one researcher to create an artistic response to their research (e.g. painting, drawing, sculpture, digital media, music, dance, any others…) along with a short statement explaining their piece – deadline is 31 October 2018. The project aims to increase the visibility of Oxford’s BAME scientists and mathematicians, bridge the perceived divide between science and art, and further connect schools and local communities with the University. There is prize money for students and schools, and a public exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in Oxford in December during the annual Christmas Lectures.
University project partners include: Gardens, Libraries & Museums (GLAM), Oxford Sparks, Oxford Education Deanery, The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), Undergraduate Admissions Office
