Art from climate science

"...There's a lot of talk about the need for collaboration between cultures, disciplines and institutions, to develop a sustainable future, but not a lot of time to build the trust to share the data, stories, hypotheses and images to inspire and enable action for change. For the 2013 Ultimo Science Festival, scientists, artists and designers come to Sydney from as far away as Antarctica for the Living Data Animating Change exhibition."

Lisa Roberts 2013

During the festival, three Living Data forums are held in the exhibition space, including Data for action: How we act on what we count, weigh and measure (Wed 18th Sept. 6-7pm).
