In exploring issues of accessibility and engagement, Science Year has supported a range of science-art initiatives around the UK including regional and national science theatre programmes, a professional touring science circus programme and collaborative science-art installations. The arts have been used in all these cases as a tool to communicate and debate science, rendering it accessible to even the most disenchanted of our audiences, whilst the science has served as a gateway to new forms of artistic expression and collaboration. In this session we will explore some of the key art-science programmes developed and delivered during Science Year and outline the various commitments to science art programming within the UK.

Science Year engaging via the arts science interface

Bobby Cerini   Programme Manager, Science Year, London

In exploring issues of accessibility and engagement, Science Year has supported a range of science-art initiatives around the UK including regional and national science theatre programmes, a professional touring science circus programme and collaborative science-art installations. The arts have been used in all these cases as a tool to communicate and debate science, rendering it accessible to even the most disenchanted of our audiences, whilst the science has served as a gateway to new forms of artistic expression and collaboration. In this session we will explore some of the key art-science programmes developed and delivered during Science Year and outline the various commitments to science art programming within the UK.
