The Arts & Genomics Centre is based at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Leiden Institute of Chemistry, Gorlaeus Laboratories, University of Leiden, The Netherlands. The Centre creates a platform for international artists, scientific researchers and professionals from business and government organisations in the aim to stimulate, initiate and supervise meetings, discussions, collaborations and exchanges.

The Arts & Genomics Centrebuilds upon results of the New Representational Spaces Programme, which investigates the interactions of arts and genomics and aims to describe and analyse the unique role that the visual arts can have in the critical evaluation and dissemination of the results of genomics research.

The Arts & Genomics Centre thus attempts to expand the public debate on (future) goals, means, possibilities and use of results of genomics, form the specific point of view of bio-genetic art and develop tools for drawing in new audiences.
