The arts can effectively respond to diminishing societal trust in science, contribute to the creation of public discourse and understanding of science, facilitate knowledge transfer between science and society, and stimulate innovation. Artistic interaction with science opens new pathways far beyond illustrating science. Artists can enter into a dialogue with researchers and scientists that is either critical or supportive Art has the power to emotionally reach out to citizens and to interest but also engage them in a scientifi c process2. Recently, programmes in the arts, in science, and to a limited extent in technology include actions targeting the interaction of artists with research projects3. This brief was developed with contributions from experts in both fi elds. There are clear synergies between these concepts and the benefi ts of considering them together. This document highlights how art can support citizen science and vice versa. The document concludes by recommending to consider citizen science and the arts jointly, to strengthen synergies by building on existing initiatives, to launch targeted actions regarding education and training, and to launch art-science initiatives. This brief was developed within the framework of the Horizon 2020 project ‘Doing It Together Science’ (DITOs).
