Science, Art & Culture (SAC) is in development aiming to start in Fall 2019. I am currently raising funds from external sponsors. Please stay tuned for more information. Find previous lectures and speakers. You can donate here!! Thank you!
EcoScience+Art (2013-2018) is an initiative and collaboration between the arts and sciences at George Mason University. Through a variety of events and activities EcoScience+Art intends to provide the university and surrounding communities with an opportunity to experience, learn, and actively participate in novel works and cooperative ideas across curricula and professional disciplines. The series supports the collaboration of environmental sciences, the arts, and humanities with the intention of finding new transdisciplinary approaches for college general education, university research, and collaborative endeavors with local organizations.
Please join the EcoScience + Art student leadership group (Tier II) if you are a student interested in joining the group - https://getconnected.gmu.edu/organization/EcoSciencePlusArt
The novel, unprecedented theme of the focused symposium will provide a unique opportunity to share experiences and build collaborations among ecological engineers, ecosystem scientists, and eco-artists in the context of an international Congress. The symposium will provide an international audience with U.S. experiences on ecological design, ecosystem restoration, urban ecology, ecological engineering practices, ecosystem science and engineering, and eco-art, both separately and collaboratively. The focused symposium will also present an opportunity for both the participants and the attendees of the Congress for cross-cultural, interdisciplinary connections and thus further collaboration opportunities among them. This type of scholarly and cultural exchange is rare and will strengthen U.S. scientific research and practices in ecosystem restoration, watershed management, biodiversity, storm water management, and ecological engineering practices. The learning outcome of the focused symposium will be a transformational nexus of ecosystem science and engineering and eco-art to enhance communication, research, and education as a key aspect of advancing environmental sustainability.
I also collaborate with Provisions Library (Donald Russell, Executive Director) as part of the School of Art for both on-campus art-science projects and mentoring student sustainability art-science projects on a variety of topics.
