Many of you may remember Solutions Twin Cities as the force that brought us Solutions for the Other 90% last summer during the Design for the Other 90% show. Well, they’re at it again and this time they’ve put together lunch-hour’s worth of presentations on science and art as part of the Innovation 2008 conference at the University of Minnesota this week.
So if you’re in the university neighborhood, head over to the U of M’s McNamara Alumni Center at 11 am on Tuesday, October 21 for a mid-day menu of 6 minute and 40 second presentations by innovative artists, scientists, and educators from the Twin Cities. They will each use their unique perspective to discuss how a fusion of art and science can be used to broaden the appeal of science policy in the public eye. The speakers are:
David Goldes, photographer and professor at Minneapolis College of Art and Design
Rachel Breen of Invigorate the Common Well
Ananya Chatterjea of Ananya Dance Theatre
Steve Jevning of Leonardo’s Basement
Neil Olszewski of the U of M’s Plant Biology Department
Lawrence Rudnick of the Minnesota Planetarium & Space Discovery Center
Jeffrey Kahn of the U of M’s Center for Bioethics
Best of all, its free! Well, the ideas and inspiration are free. You’ll have to bring your own lunch. For directions and rsvp information go here.
