Scientists and creative practitioners have more ways, and more reasons, to collaborate than ever before. Discover how the tools of cinematography, storyboarding, graphic design, and sound engineering are increasingly being used to communicate modern, complex science. This is opening up a whole new arena for creatives with an interest in science, and for creative scientists alike.
This event features live presentations from two world-leading biomedical animators and science communicators: Graham Johnson from the UCSF (USA) and Drew Berry – winner of a MacArthur Fellowship, a BAFTA and an Emmy award – from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne.
Following the talks, you will have a chance to network over a mixer in the adjacent MCA Lounge. There will also be an opportunity for a limited number of participants to briefly introduce their work to the audience. If your work bridges art, creativity, and science, and you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, please send short description of your work (one paragraph and one PNG image) by 23rd May, 5 PM EST, to firstname.lastname@example.org after you have registered for this event.
This event is presented by ‘VIZBI+ Visualising the Future of Biomedicine’, a new project funded by theInspiring Australia government initiative, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research (WEHI), and CSIRO.
