Everything is Connected; Using Visual Art to Shape Your Research

Join us for an exciting hands-on workshop where you will learn how to effectively communicate your science using visual art! Together, Marine Ecologist and CSU Northridge Professor, Dr. Nyssa Silbiger, and visual artist, Lauren Shapiro, M.F.A., will talk about their past and present collaborative art installations and how they utilize their art to reach broad audiences. This workshop will be specifically geared towards providing information about the logistics of incorporating visual art to broaden outreach initiatives, including: how to forge professional working relationships with artists to create exhibits that make research findings accessible to the public, obtain research grants to fund these initiatives, and cultivate community and environmental stewardship through art.

Spots are limited for the hands-on portion of the workshop. Make sure to signup when registering to guarantee your spot to get practice representing your research using clay!
