Interaction Point

'Interaction Point' is a new project that brings together the challenging subjects of art and science to create a new kind of holistic learning.

Delving into the world of physics, young people from Holy Cross Primary School, King’s Leadership Academy and The Studio School will explore particle and nuclear physics in the context of particle accelerator research. Art will be the catalyst for conversations, enabling young people to join a scientific discussion by co-creating a language that they feel comfortable with.

Their research and findings will culminate in a new YouTube channel - designed, created and programmed with STEAM content to engage with an online audience. Following this, the work created will be showcased in The Tale of Two Tunnels, a project that will tell the story of the construction of a particle accelerator in Liverpool.

This programme is developed in the context of both 'The Tale of Two Tunnels', a project by the Department of Physics at the University of Liverpool and 'Broken Symmetries', an exhibition that shows the outcomes of the three year collaboration between Arts at CERN and FACT.

'Interaction Point' is funded by the University of Liverpool in partnership with FACT.

'The Tale of Two Tunnels' is funded by a STFC (Science & Technology Facilities Council) Public Engagement Grant and University of Liverpool with support from Victoria Gallery & Museum, World Museum, Merseyrail, Liverpool City Council and FACT.

'Broken Symmetries' is co-produced by the ScANNER network (Arts at CERN, FACT, CCCB, iMAL and le lieu unique) and developed as part of the Collide International Award, a partnership programme between Arts at CERN and FACT (2016-2018).
