Science interplaying with Art

Monday, 19 August 2019 - 8:30am to 9:00am

This National Science Week, we hear a discussion on the interplay between science and art. On the 7th of August, Yarra Libraries held a forum, Adding the A to the STEM, Stem standing for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, and A standing for Art. The panel also explores how STEM fields have presented barriers for people at the margins because of systemic oppressions, with women and people of colour under-represented in the area. We hear from Mei Liu, a science communicator; Erica Hediger, a designer and mechanical engineer; Maxime Banks, multidisciplinary creator, of the Black-American diaspora; and from the moderator, Stacy Gildenston, an educator and rocket builder. We end with a moving tribute to the late Toni Morrison by Maxime Banks.
