Biomes – sneak peak of our September showcase
With mental and physical human health inextricably linked to our connection with the natural world, Biomes is an art science collaboration between the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Education and Arts, throughout National Biodiversity Month in September 2020.
The objective of Biomes is to provide an engaging and immersive experience to empower the community to take their own action and to see their region as a living, sustainable and diverse community.
Biomes is unique in that it addresses the human issues causing today’s climate emergency and biodiversity crisis by celebrating stories that bring biodiversity back from the brink of extinction.
For more information, including that related to the Biomes exhibition, please contact Dr Alex Callen.
