Make, do, think: new forms of literacy to make sense of the world

Thursday, September 24th at 6:00pm 20 months ago
We dispose of an abundance of scientific tools and technological devices to measure and monitor the entangled complexities characterizing global scale phenomena such as climate change, environmental pollution or technological saturation. But can we grasp their significance at a local, micro, and personal level? Can we develop a civic science that promotes awareness and enables communities to become active evidence-seekers and, themselves, sustainable producers?

With this first Fall-Winter ArtSci Salon event, Sylvia Adamcik and Antonio Gamba-Bari address these questions by exploring new forms of literacy through interdisciplinary approaches that incorporate science, artistic expression, and DIY and making initiatives.
