Art and the Communication of Climate Science: Making Sense of how artists and scientists can collaborate on the question of the ozone hole and biodiversity in Antarctica?
Panel discussion and conference in conjunction with the exhibition Making Sense at Craft, featuring work by Jasmine Targett and Debbie Symons
How can artists and scientists work together to respond to the concerns of the ecological conundrum? How can environmental data be visually explored in innovative mediums? Join us for a discussion exploring these questions and others raised by the exhibition Making Sense – Life Support Systems.
The objective of this public forum is to stimulate an open dialogue between Melbourne based Artists and Scientists. We are interested in bringing together key people from both these fields to construct a community for future collaborations, further enriching both research disciplines.
