A few weeks ago I went to a seminar entitled ‘Climates that art can change’ at the Eco Centre at Griffith University to inspire the environmental artist in me. A lot of focus was on photography, video and graphic design and how they reached their own target audiences and the questions that they provoked.
It seemed the evening concluded with asking another question ‘How do scientists communicate through art?’ not just specifically climate change. Art is a very useful tool in communicating to the wider public, and science can benefit from being communicated more efficiently. Therefore, connecting art and science would be a very positive step forward.
