Making Space: A Workshop on Space, SciArt & Society

Jamie Molaro Planetary Science Institute

"Making Space: A Workshop on Space, SciArt, & Society"

Making Space is an in-person multiday workshop about space, sciart, and making where we use art as a tool to explore scientific concepts and humanity’s relationship to space. Participants will learn about how we use spacecraft observations to explore other worlds, how to re-frame those observations in creative ways, do collaborative discussion and art activities, and practice creating sciart through hands-on art labs in a variety of mediums. By the end of the workshop, participants will create their own piece of science-driven art which they will be invited to showcase at an art exhibition later in the year. The workshop is targeted towards an adult audience with backgrounds (professional or otherwise) in art and/or science. Artists, makers, scientists, science communicators, and educators are encouraged to apply!
