Venue O’Reilly’s Bar + Kitchen, 21 West 35th St, New York, NY
Join the Ligo Project at our Science (as) Culture Winter Happy Hour for cross-disciplinary discussion and exchange of ideas focused on integration of science and society and how to change how we as a society think about, learn about, and talk about art, science and technology. This event will be an informal meet and greet format with stimulating discussions across science, art, and other disciplines over a winter libation (or two)!
Scientists make discoveries, engineers design new technologies, artists create installations contemplating how the world works, corporations develop and distribute new products, policymakers, researchers, creatives, and grassroots activists alike attempt to create positive impacts, while others instead either choose to remain a passive observer or feel their voice goes unheard. Ideally, all of these actors could work together at all stages of scientific and technological development to ensure the best outcomes for society as a whole. However, integrating these often disparate and sometimes competing fields—labs, creative spaces, corporations, universities, funding organizations, movements, governing bodies, and communities—is challenging.
RSVP is required; please visit the event’s website for more details.
