Workshop 02: 1:00pm-3:30pm, Sat 26th ASCUS Lab

Mixer event
A pre workshop mixer event on 19th January 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.

Festival of Creative Learning Exhibition.
The work created will culminate in a pop up exhibition on Monday the 18th of February in the University of Edinburgh main library which will form part of the Festival of Creative Learning 2019 (18th-22nd February).

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.

The Festival of Creative Learning is a year-long series of events exploring creative learning and innovation at the University of Edinburgh, culminating in a curated week of events each February.

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,
ASCUS Art & Science Team
