“Scientists collaborating with artists are more likely to take risks, bring innovative approaches to their fields, and incorporate alternative ways of thinking and perceiving in their work”

– Glinkowski P, Bamford A. Insight and Exchange: An evaluation of the Wellcome Trust’s Sciart programme

The Australian Science Communicators (SE Queensland Branch) and DSITI have assembled a panel of artists and scientist-artists to discuss where art and science collide at the 2017 Art meets Science exhibition. This event will feature a short keynote from Dr Graham Baker and a panel featuring Professor Ross Barnard, Donna Davis, Svetlana Trefilova, and Maria Vandergragt.

We are pleased to have you open the night, by speaking briefly about the value of art-science collaborations.

We will then host a panel discussion for the remaining 30 minutes to continue discussing art-science collaborations and how each discipline can contribute to the other.

Below, we have included some talking points to help you prepare for your presentation.

Talking points:

  • What is the value of art-science collaboration?
  • What is your experience of these collaborations?
  • How can art and science contribute to one another?
  • Tell us a little about the Queensland Academy of Art and Science.
