Art & Science

When scientists work with artists to explore scientific knowledge, communities are engaged in unexpected and memorable ways. Art/science collaborations supported by Inspiring Australia NSW have led to significant new funding, further commissions for artists and new opportunities for scientists to translate their research knowledge. Many projects have included radio broadcasts and media coverage leading to international collaborations.
