Science and the arts

Science and the arts are often thought of as diametrically opposed, but increasingly, collaborations between people in the arts and sciences are producing new knowledges, and finding new ways to engage people with both the arts and the sciences. Research projects in this theme investigate the benefits and possibilities of bringing science and art together in a science communication space, where 'art' may refer to the visual arts, music, popular or literary writing, and more.
