Why you should come

We might agree that two heads are better than one – especially when it comes to solving a challenge like climate change. 

  • Shared intentions
  • Co-creation that may be neither science nor art
  • Hybridized methodologies

Join us May 16-17, 2020 in Provincetown, MA for what will be the next step of a bright new idea in fostering discovery. Be part of the pioneering group of artists and scientists building the actual bridge toward a shared insight, outcome – or even world-changing climate change remedy.

Besides, haven’t you always wanted to come to Provincetown?
