Inspiring South Australia is pleased to announced the 2018 South Australian Regional Science-Arts Collaboration Grants awarded for 2018 are:
Out of the Blue – led by Linda Cooper (STEM Ambassador) and Niki Sperou (Artist in Residence Dept. of Medical Biotechnology, Flinders University)
This project will focus upon the production of artwork and critical thinking toward marine algae from South Eastern Australia from the perspectives of environmental science, and technologically what can be done with them for industry applications.
Under the Surface – led by Southern Eyre Arts Inc.
The project inspires a collaboration between art and science to showcase life beneath the waves under the Port Lincoln Jetty.
Ageing, frailty and the stories we tell – led by Mandy Archibald, Flinders University College of Nursing and Health Sciences
The project will explore explore the meanings that people attribute to the concept of frailty, the fears and stigmas surrounding aging, and the meanings that older persons attribute to the objects in their lives.
Ngarrindjeri Seasonal Calendar – led by Zoos SA
The project will focus on communicating Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), in this case seasonal indicators that can be observed in nature, through an engaging calendar graphic and mural featuring photography and artwork, and through Aboriginal ceremony.
Perform your Science featured early-career researchers and PhD students who joined forces with a range of artists to develop a series of live performances. From the life-cycle of a parasitic, caterpillar-munching wasp, to an emotional exploration of how we humans deal with ageing and frailty, Perform your Science brought to life ground-breaking, scientific research in exciting and innovative ways.
