Creating a Climate for Change through Art & Science
Special lecture series exploring the synergies between art and science as a way to communicate environmental issues and planetary health while inspiring change and stimulating action will be offered this summer.
In conjunction with two current exhibitions at Highfield, SEAChange: Meditations on Sustainability and Turn the Tide: Courtney Mattison, participating artists and scientists will discuss a range of topics, including ocean acidification and coral bleaching, biofuels and the Blue Economy, mapping as an artform and a communication tool, methane munching microbes, and art as means to amplify science and transform how we learn about the world.
Lecture series is in collaboration with the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Woodwell Climate Research Center. Sponsored by the Woods Hole Foundation and the Brabson Library and Educational Foundation.
