Come Join us in ASCUS Lab for Art & Science on a Postcard, a networking and hands-on workshop for artists and scientists. This workshop is brought to you by ASCUS, InterSci and in collaboration with Pint of Science and their Creative Reactions initiative.

This is a collaborative & creative exchange of knowledge and ideas. We will begin with scientists and artists exchanging their research and creative practices. This will be followed by a hands-on image making session inspired by the science and initial conversations, concepts and exchange of ideas. Together the artists and scientists will be teamed up and encouraged to explore art-science narratives through image making side by side collaborating and exchanging approaches throughout the process. This workshop is not about making illustrative scientific imagery, it is about a two way exchange of knowledge and experience between scientists and artists. For this workshop we encourage artists interested in exploring the challenge of image making in response to current scientific research, and scientists interested in embracing creative approaches to image making as a visual aid in explaining their research.

Artists will be encouraged to act as a creative mentor to the scientist their 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. This is an opportunity for both scientists and artists to get creative with science!
