Symposium Delivered (and Reslience Tested!)
|Connecting audience with sustainability data |
and content through the heart. -Arlene Birt
Today we delivered our symposium "Artists as Partners in Infrastructure Education" at the the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) 2018: The Science, Business, and Education of Sustainable Infrastructure: January 23-25, 2018, Washington, D.C.
|Cathy Abene via video: posing the idea that perhaps engineering |
students should have more exposure to the arts in their
education so they can be more oriented to the
possibilities in art-infra collaborations.
Thanks to the participants who came to our session, we had a lively discussion about the practice of engaging artists in infrastructure and science work, and discussed challenges and questions. "How do artists' roles get funded on these projects?" We discussed multiple models, including building time for artists into capital improvement projects, grants, consulting, and more.
|Shanai's Water Bar presentation "We serve water," is a literal |
practice (serving different tap waters to foster dialogue)
as well as the mission to serve water resources and
the communities associated with them.
So thank you to our participants, and again, please contact us (see the about page) and enter comments, questions, and contributions to this website.
PDFs of our presentations are now posted on the NCSE Symposium page.
