May 18: Broto 2's Conference Day

8:30 AM - 5 PM A day of workshops, panels, and speakers. Special highlights include: 

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM Globalizing Art and Science: Our panel of experts will explore how and why planet-scale art and science might work, with lessons from other global initiatives. What makes art and science global? How do we scope art and science at scale?


1 PM - 2:30 PM Investigating Art as a Vector for Scale: Our panel of experts will explore how art might provide a catalyst for global climate science scale -- learning from, and perhaps outperforming, the efforts of multinational corporations and NGOs, global government and global religion. How do we engage art as a way to take climate science to planet scale?


3 PM - 5 PM Scoping a Global Art-Cli-Sci Installation: In a facilitator-led group discussion, we'll envision what a synchronous, seven-content, art-climate-science installation might look like. What's the art? What's the science? Who are the players? How might it work with credibility? If we can't imagine at planet scale, then we can't engineer at planet scale.


Explore Provincetown late night and Sunday -- shows, entertainment, restaurants, shopping. Whale watching, dune tours and Pilgrim Monument and other attractions will be open for the 2019 season!


We want this program to embody mutual and substantive art-sci collaboration, to explore our Collaboration Blueprint model and to engage our community in innovative content that expands the climate change conversation. More soon as we finalize the details.
