After a successful launch in 2018, Broto: Art, Science & Collaboration addressing climate change will host its second art-sci conference in Provincetown May 17-18, 2019. Details, panelists and other program highlights are still developing, but we have a central question to explore:
Can art help scale climate science to global proportions?
We might agree that climate change solutions need to be global in scale to be truly effective in remedying the crisis. And, where global government, global religion, and global multinationals seem to have faltered in building a planetary scale, might art be a viable vector?
Our two-day conference (Friday evening/Saturday day) is designed to embody art-science collaboration. We’ll put into practice a mutual way of working together – building on our nascent Collaboration Blueprint and exploring what a global climate science-art installation might look like.
- What’s the science?
- What’s the art?
- Who are the players?
- How might it work?
It’s a blue-sky creative discussion with an open-ended outcome.
