Science (as) Culture: The 1000 year view & how to get there
2016/05/18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
From the Ligo Project organizers:
Scientists make discoveries, engineers design new technologies, artists create multimedia installations contemplating how the world works, corporations develop and distribute new products, policymakers, researchers, creatives, and grassroots activists alike attempt to create positive impacts, while others instead either choose to remain a passive observer or feel their voice goes unheard. Ideally, all of these actors could work together at all stages of scientific and technological development to ensure the best outcomes for society as a whole. However, integrating these often disparate and sometimes competing fields—labs, creative spaces, corporations, universities, funding organizations, movements, governing bodies, and communities—is challenging. Ligo Project is working to dissolve those boundaries and to tackle this challenge with creativity.
Join us at the table for part 3 of an intimate yet challenging 3-part multidisciplinary exchange of ideas focused on integration of science and society and how to achieve it that gives everyone the opportunity to be heard and aims to change how we as a society think about, learn about, and talk about art, science and technology.
