Event description
A practical workshop for local artists and scientists to share ideas and to get creative with science.

About this Event

Brought to you by InterSci and ASCUS Art & Science in collaboration with the Midlothian Science Festival 2019, Art & Science on a Postcard, is a networking and hands-on workshop for artists and scientists to exchange knowledge and ideas and to get creative with science.

Dates

Pre Workshop Mixer: Saturday 5th October 10am-12pm Dalkeith Arts Centre

Afternoon Workshop : 1:00pm-3:30pm, Sat 12th October Dalkeith Arts Centre

Mixer event

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.

The Workshop:

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.

Partners

InterSci is a student society at Edinburgh University whose aim is to encourage conversation and collaboration between scientists of different disciplines, and provide a platform for scientists to share their work with the public.

ASCUS Art and Science is a non-profit organisation committed to bridging the gap between the arts and sciences. ASCUS works with partners and practitioners to create innovative trans-disciplinary projects to engage new and wider audiences and facilitate innovative public engagement with both fields.

Midlothian Science Festival is a month long science festival throughout Midlothian with the aim to inspire and engage people in science and discovery, and build trust between local science centres and local communities.

The success of this event depends on an equal numbers of artists to scientists signing-up. If there are no longer tickets available under one category please do not book under a different title as this will mean we cannot create interdisciplinary matches on the day. Thank you for your help.

See you soon,

InterSci Edinburgh & ASCUS Art & Science
