Discover Wildlife: Art and Science
A multidisciplinary celebration of the art, science and conservation of Australian wildlife is being held next month.
Head of School for Design, Communication and Information Technology, Dr Anne Llewellyn will be presenting at the Discover Wildlife: Art and Science symposium being held in Canberra from May 15-16.
The event is a collaboration between the Wildlife and Botanical Artists (WABA) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) that will discuss how art can make a difference to science and conservation in Australia and its future directions. The event will feature a range of activities including speakers, presentations, workshops, activities and tours.
An art exhibition, Wildlife Art @ Discovery, will also be officially launched on May 15 at the CSIRO Discovery Centre and will include artworks from some of Australia's best wildlife artists.
