A panel and discussion on current synergistic creative research and teaching partnerships between artists and scientists stimulating innovation, knowledge production and critical engagement. With a focus on environmentalism, the panelists will present examples of research shaped by the disciplines of art and science. Learn about projects that are created by scientists working with artists, by artists who teach and work with scientists, and by an artist who is also a scientist. What happens when there is friction? Who benefits from these collaborations? Is the career risk worth it? Join the moderated discussion at the end.
