Future Climate Dialogues: Symposium at Aberystwyth University, Arts Centre

13 June 2013

Chaired panel discussion sessions will be focused around the following overarching questions:

Session 1: What can be gained from collaboration between art and science?
Possible discussion points include: historical relationships between art and science; the dynamics of collaboration between artists and scientists (e.g. discussion of methodological differences/outcomes, alternative perceptions etc.).

Session 2: How can climate science best be disseminated to the public?
Possible discussion points include: public understanding of climate change knowledge production and dissemination; use of visualisation in climate research and public engagement/education; artistic expression.

Session 3: How can we promote new synergies between art and science?
Possible discussion points include: strategies for future research (e.g. the potential for creative interrogation of climate data and model outputs).

Session 4: How do we best represent future climate uncertainties?
Possible discussion points include: historical and cultural readings of past climate change; use of language and imagery (e.g. in discourses of climate change ‘fear’ or ‘solution’?).

The event at Aberystwyth Arts Centre will also feature films and installations and we welcome submissions to run alongside the main programme.

This event is a collaboration between The Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences, The Arts Centre and The School of Art, organised by Julian Ruddock (SoA) and Dr Stephen Tooth (IGES). All abstracts and biographies should be sent to Julian Ruddock at jcr3@aber.ac.uk as should any other enquiries regarding the symposium.

Registration for the symposium is £20, which includes lunch and refreshments. The event is free for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.
