DA4GA highlights and explores the exciting and novel possibilities between design, artistic practice and Life Sciences. Inaugurated by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative, Waag Society, Naturalis and CSG – Centre for Society and the Life Sciences, DA4GA aims to stimulate emerging designers and artists to delve into the world of bio-art, and produce new work in close collaboration with the most prestigious Dutch Life Science institutes in the field of sustainability, food, health, bio-informatics, agriculture, energy and safety.

Did you graduate no longer than five years ago in the field of art or design? Do the breakthroughs of Life Sciences fascinate you, and do you have a knack for (applied) arts and/or design? Then we want you to send in your CV, portfolio and idea for a project that combines artistic merit with the vast developments in Life Sciences…”
