Artists are Present

Artists are Present is a new ASCUS initiative that places artists in the heart of scientific conferences.

This initiative aims to:

  • Create opportunities for artists to engage with the science and scientists towards forming collaborations fusing art and science.
  • Create opportunities for scientists to see their research from a different perspective and to work towards innovative public engagement with science through art.


If you are running or are involved with a scientific conference and are interested in opening your doors to artists and incorporating the ASCUS Artists are Present initiative please contact us directly:
