About the project

Beyond Boundaries

The Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division of the University of Oxford first launched Beyond Boundaries in 2018, running it again in 2020 and for the third time in 2023. This science-inspired art competition is for Oxfordshire state school students in Years 5, 6, 7, and 8 to create art inspired by research from six Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) scientists.

The Beyond Boundaries project, originally funded by the University of Oxford Diversity Fund, aims to increase the visibility of Oxford’s Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic scientists and mathematicians, bridge the perceived divide between science and art, and further connect schools and local communities with the University.
