Art & Science

When scientists work with artists to explore scientific knowledge, communities are engaged in unexpected and memorable ways. Many art and science collaborations supported by Inspiring Australia NSW have led to significant arts funding, new commissions for artists and further opportunities for scientists to translate their research through the arts, including internationally and via online documentation, radio broadcasts and media coverage. Below are just of a few example of art-science collaborations we’ve funded.
