How to Work With Artists to Increase Engagement in Your Science


Thursday, September 24, 2020

12-1pm Eastern / 9-10am Pacific

Thank you for joining us.

Scientific understanding can be expanded by art in a variety of ways. Art can illustrate difficult concepts and processes, uncover new ways of thinking about an issue/topic, and inspire non-scientists to examine the beauty of science and research. For most scientists, graphics, illustrations and other art forms lie beyond the scope of their expertise. Working with trained artists can help researchers invite others into their work, building trust and understanding.

In this webinar, a panel of scientists and artists will discuss ways to connect and collaborate with artists and designers. Speakers are from Lifeology, a platform and a community space that brings together scientists, health experts, artists, writers and broader audiences in the creation of mobile-friendly mini-courses that can reach anyone.

Webinar Speakers:

Gaius J. Augustus, Scientist and Artist; Paige Jarreau, Director of Science Communication at Lifeology; Doryan Algarra, Head of Design at Lifeology; and Elaine Algarra, Communications Manager at Lifeology. View their biographies here
