This year’s project, Creative Collisions takes its lead from our mission 'to join up and celebrate the quality and diversity of our local creative community‘ for 10 days.
Artists explore the idea of 'collision' and its place in collaborative and creative activities from the simplest actions that might uncover properties of the materials and instruments you use in artistic work, to the apparent impossibility of linking divergent fields of thinking and practice.
The 10 days | Creative Collisions project includes events that communicate ideas central to the work of scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, where collisions and the visualisation of events have been central to the landmark discovery of the Higgs Boson. The Higgs Boson is reported as giving mass to 'everything' and has been discovered by colliding the innermost parts of an atom together.
Join In and help us foster new opportunities for creativity and innovation reflecting Winchester’s distinctive contemporary and historic identity. In its simplest form, 10 days | Creative Collisions is a way of opening a conversation, solving a problem or starting something new.
