We’re not sure if science is the new rock ‘n’ roll, but art and science are coming together in Dialogues with Tomorrow, a series of collaborative talks over the next couple of months:

DIALOGUES WITH TOMORROW places artists in conversation with scientists, business people and thinkers on themes relating to climate change. In each session, an artist or cultural commentator presents ideas and work inspired by environmental issues. A response is provided by an expert in the field, followed by a discussion that brings together the knowledge, ideas and reactions of the speakers.

The first talk is next Thursday, April 15, 5.45pm at Downstage Theatre. Called Antarctica Terra Nullius?, it looks at art’s role in giving us a new understanding of Antarctica. Tickets are $15 and can be booked at Downstage.
