A pre workshop mixer event on 5th October so you will have the opportunity to meet your partner and chat the week before the main workshop. It is important you are available for both the mixer and workshop so you can start the conversation.
Artists will be encouraged to act as a creative mentor to the scientist they are paired with, sharing their practice and experience and scientists will be encouraged to communicate their research in ways that are accessible and to think outside the box in terms of how their science could be represented. The challenge being to ‘distill` an idea or your converstaion onto a A6 postcard.
Who is it for?
We encourage artists interested in exploring the challenge of image making in the response to current scientific research, and scientists interested in embracing creative approaches to image making as a visual aid in explaining their research to take part.
