Soapbox Science is coming to Plymouth for the very first time, but will have a new and exciting element! Who is a scientist and who is an artist? Can the work someone in a lab coat is doing relate to a painting, or a dancer, or be understood through music? The new project aims to bring science to arts fans and art to scientists. By challenging artists and scientists to work together, Soapbox Art & Science will bring difficult science concepts to the public in exciting, innovative and engaging ways.
Some of the UK’s leading women in science will take to their soapboxes to showcase their science to the general public, alongside some amazing artists.
The new Soapbox Art & Science 2018 event will capitalize on Soapbox Science’s current strengths to widen the audiences exposed to science carried out by women and will facilitate communication and collaboration between the arts and science communities.
Soapbox Art & Science will be part of Plymouth Art Weekender
