To build a synergy between the artist and the scientist.
To engage audiences around innovative live arts to foster an informed and lively democracy.
To encourage artists and humanists to think constructively and critically about the influence of private enterprise on scientific innovation.
To find more ways to engage students at the university level in the arts and humanities.
To diversify science labs by engaging under-served populations of pre-college students, in particular focusing their intellects and imaginations on scientific missions.
To expand the breadth of both science and art, thus furthering humankind’s pursuit of a sustainable future.
We provide a stage for artists and audiences engaged in innovation. We initiate collaborations between artists, scientists, and technologists, as well as present existing works from around the globe. This interdisciplinary approach to understanding our world has the important impact of more adequately assessing the ground-level effects of scientific innovations. Artists and humanists have the opportunity to constructively and creatively influence those who aim to change the face and the fate of humanity.
Help support artistic exploration and humanistic inquiry into the light speed advances in science and technology.
