EGU 2018 – Earth Sciences & Art session EOS8 and EOS9

Longing for a better world respectful of the environment? Are you a scientist or an artist working for a better planet sustainability? Are you a scientist cooperating with an artist to the same goal? Then, do not miss the opportunity to take part in our session dedicated to Earth sciences and Art int its fourth edition.

This year we have again a pilot performative session, presented by Niamh Shaw and in collaboration with Prof. Sam Illingworth. We are working, even with limited means, to raise the interest of the Scientific Community on how it would be intriguing performing the content of a research with the help of artists, when the public is not only  made by scientists but also by the general public.

We would be happy to have you in our upcoming EGU conference in Vienna! Let us know about your work and share it with earth scientists and artists from all over the world.

Here follows the official letter of invitation to submit an abstract. Looking forward to see you in Vienna!
