Performing the World October, 2010

Does performing science change science or scientists? Performing the World is an international conference that brings activists, educators, researchers, therapists and artists together to share their use and discovery of performance. “Does performing science change science or scientists?” was a presentation on the increasing use of performance in scientific communities. Conference session attendees (~40 people) were excited to learn of scientists playing in and looking at how we do science. Many artists and organizers were eager to collaborate in projects that build stronger mutually beneficial relationships between art, social artistry, performance and science.
