CAST OUT LOUD Art, Science, Social Engagement symposium
I have been invited by CAST, the School of Art Research Centre at RMIT University, to talk at this symposium exploring our current fascination with art, science and social engagement.
Can the power of these very different kinds of curiosity be harnessed to make a better world? For renowned scientist and novelist C.P. Snow, the split between science and the humanities prevented the cleverest people having the most important insights. Is this still so? With a keynote address from Scienceworks Director Dr Nurin Veis, CAST OUT LOUD: Art, Science, Social Engagement will look at how artists research science, and perhaps more importantly, why. Peta Clancy, Jiann Hughes and Cameron Robbins will discuss their practice and its relationship to the tenets and methodologies of science. A panel will explore the implications of this kind of interdisciplinary practice for a world that desperately needs new kinds of creativity and innovation.
Wed. 1 November 2017, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm AEDT
